Is there anything better with a cold beer than mac n cheese? Maybe jalapeños, which really do make this just about the best appetizer you can serve for a football party! Just to warn you: Once you make this for a crowd, it will become the number one request of you for all future gatherings.
Things You'll Need
1 ½ cups (packed) shredded cheddar cheese (plus additional for topping)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup whole milk
1 (5 ounce) small can evaporated milk
1 cup elbow macaroni
12 large jalapeños
Preheat oven to 350F°.
Add the cheddar, milk, evaporated milk, cornstarch, salt and garlic powder to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Simmer the cheese sauce until thickened.
Boil the macaroni until al dente.
Add the cooked macaroni to the cheese sauce and stir until well combined.
Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise, then remove the seeds. Add the jalapeños, cut-side up, to a baking sheet.
Fill the jalapeños with mac n cheese, then top with cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350°F.
Add to a serving platter, serve warm. Enjoy!
