    Cynna's Note:

    A nice creamy comfort dish. I like it best on a cold winter's night with a good tequila lime chicken dish, but I'm sure you could have it anytime and it would be just as tasty! You may want to add some salt to this recipe. I leave it out because my doc wants me to stay away from excess sodium.

      I am usually a very strict follower of recipes, but I was searching out a recipe that came close to a dish I ate in a restaurant last week. This was the closest I found. To give the recipe the punch I wanted, I used 3 LARGE jalapenos and left in about 10 to 15 seeds. I also used almost a full teaspoon of cayenne, and 7 or 8 cloves of garlic. Used 3 green onions from my garden (the bottom few inches only) instead of half a small onion, sprinkled in some paprika, and added a 15.25 oz. can of corn. Left out the bread crumbs just because I had none. I did not add salt other than to the water for noodles, and did not miss it at all. I have the flavor totally where I want it (maybe too much garlic for others), and I am going to play with the cheese, milk and flour next time to get enough of a liquid where it will bubble while baking. Might try tabasco sometime for a change of pace, but I am seriously in love with this spicy dish!!!

      I was really excited to try this recipe out based on the scrumptious photo and a craving for mac n' cheese. Unfortunately, the final product turned into a nearly inedible mess. Firstly, I would have halved the amount of breadcrumbs (and probably the flour) as well. All the creaminess I savoured as I initially tasted the cheese sauce disappeared once I pulled the dish out of the oven. Secondly, to echo previous reviewers, some seasoning would have really spiced this dish up. I tried using two jalapenos instead of three, and it was still too spicy for me, but I won't hold that against the recipe. Overall, there was a lot of potential, but I'll make some changes if I am to make this again.

      I thought it was a little bland . . . despite the kick from the pepper, it was missing something. Not sure what - salt? I didn't add any - maybe I should have. I used poblanos because the jalapenos in my store looked a little "tired," and dried minced onions because I was out of onions. I also thought the sauce was a bit thick - might use 3 T flour vs. 5, and maybe add a bit more cheese.
