Jimmy Buffett’s Like Spicy Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese Recipe



Here’s a great comparison recipe to the Jimmy Buffett’s like spicy jalapeno macaroni and cheese recipe that I always enjoy at Margaritaville:

What You Will Need:

–   2 cups of melted cream cheese

–   2 ½ cups of heavy cream

–   8 Tbsp of butter

–   ¼ tsp of Creole seasoning

–   1 tsp of salt

–   1 cup of cheddar cheese (this may seem like a lot but trust me, it’s worth it)

–   1/3 cup of flour

–   ¼ cup of sliced jalapenos (if you’re a big jalapeno fan, I would suggest changing this to ½ cup)

–   ½ cup of jalapeno juice from a jar (I’ve made this before with pickle juice instead.  It changes the flavour a little bit but it still takes great in the end)

–   ¼ cup of bread crumbs

–   2 cups of macaroni noodles


What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your over to 350°F.

2.   Cook the pasta as indicated on the package.

3.   In a large skillet, melt the butter.

4.   Then add the cream cheese, heavy cream, jalapeno juice and stir for a few minutes.

5.   Now stir in the cheddar and continually stir until the cheese has melted.

6.  Add the jalapenos, salt, Creole and flour.  Continue to cook and stir until everything is completely mixed together.

7.   Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.

8.   Make a few layers of the pasta and then contents from the skillet until everything is used up.

9.   Sprinkle the bread crumbs on top.

10.   Bake, covered for 30 minutes.

11.   Now bake for another 20 minutes covered until the top has become golden brown.


About Dino
There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
