Very good! The family really enjoyed it. A nice change from plain mac and cheese type casseroles. I loved the addition of spices and tomatoes. As written, this is not too spicy so I'll use 2 fresh jalape?os, minced, and 1/4 t cayenne without worry. This makes a huge 13x9 dish, plenty to feed my family of five at least two meals. So next time, I'll freeze half to bake later. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
OMGosh this is killer good. I didn't have fresh jalapenos but used the pickled jarred ones and just minced them and added to the saute pan. I used 4 cups of half and half and a 1/2 cup of cream. The mixture came out very thick and creamy. Hubby and I both agreed that you could use either cooked chicken, cooked sausage, cooked ground beef or even kielbasa in this recipe in place of the ham. Can't wait to make this again ~ Thanks Kittencal for a WONDERFUL recipe.
