Jalapeño Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by RepoGuysWife

This is a version of Jimmy Buffet's Macaroni that they serve at Margaritaville. Made this last night along with bbq ribs. Was a big hit. I made it as the recipe states as this was my first try. I think I will cut down the juice and up the cajun seasoning next time. It is a good and spicy macaroni and cheese. So if your looking for traditional, this is not it. If your looking for a macaroni and cheese to spice up dinner try it!

This has some KICK to it. It was a little spicy for us. Next time I'll leave out the jalapeno juice out. I did have to add more cheese since DH could live on cheese alone. Also I leave out the salt since the cajun seasoning had enough for us. Thanks for a new way to make mac and cheese. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
