Recipe RAVE

I made this last night:

 

http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/05/not-your-grannys-mac-cheese/ 

 

And OMG.  OMG OMG OMG.  Amaaaaaaaazing.  

 

Clearly it's not health food, but it's no fun to count calories ALL the time.  I roasted some broccoli alongside so there was at least one healthy element.  :)

 

 

 

PS - WEAR GLOVES to dice the jalapeno.  I didn't.  Hours later, it was still burning under my nails.  (Hand washing doesn't cut it -- the capsaicin binds to receptors in your skin and sticks.)  I had DH take my contacts out for me before bed, since I was afraid I'd burn my eyes.

Re: Recipe RAVE

  • That sounds delish!
  • OMG. That looks so good!  And I think even my culinary skills could handle it. Thanks!
  • Looks yummy!

    And good call on the contacts thing...I took my contacts out one time after chopping a jalapeno like 5 or 6 hours earlier and it was HORRIBLE.  Then stupid me didn't throw them away and put the same pair in the next morning.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.

  • Looks yummy.  Do you think it would still be amazing without the jalapeno?  I am a spice wuss and probably couldn't handle it.  haha
  • Yum!  I've had a thing for pepper jack cheese lately.  I can't wait to try this!  Thanks for the recipe!

  • Just a single jalapeno doesn't add much heat AT ALL.  Only to my fingers!  But you could skip it.  I think the heat is probably more influenced by how hot your pepper jack cheese is.
