Jalapeño Macaroni and Cheese

"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.


<p>About me hmmm...well as you can see by my name, I married my favorite Repo Guy on New Years Eve 2004. We were together for a total of 10 years before I would give in...LOL. I have an awesome son who graduated High School June 2011. I am trying to convince him cooking school is the way to go, but he wants to be like Dad...what can you do? &nbsp;<br /> <br />We own our own Reposession Company in Fort Lauderdale that keeps us very busy. &nbsp;When we aren't working we are doing alot of work on our home and yard. We tend to have a lot of impromtu get togethers, mostly BBQ's by the pool and such, not too stuffy at our house. Your a guest the first time you come over, after that your part of the family and mi casa is su casa. <br /> <br />I of course love to cook, collect recipes and cookbooks and anything that has to do with food. <br /> <br />I play Bunco once a month with 11 other women that are just awesome, which we always have lots of yummy munchies at. So I am hoping I get some new recipes here to try out on them. <br /> <br />I love to read - everything from James Patterson to Laurell K Hamilton...yeah I am digging on the vampires lately. <br /> <br />Living in FLorida, I just love warm weather and spending time in the sun. I am a sun worshiper and hope to one day live on the beach. <br /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/4811_36069_t.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/candle3.png border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png border=0 alt=Made by Bella14ragazza /></a></p> 8761539"
