Warning- these mac and cheese jalapeno poppers are epic. I ate two while I was shooting them and had to go back to the kitchen and stuff some more! Cheesy macaroni covered in crunchy Cheetos and more melted cheese, swoon!
I’ve always known about jalapeno poppers but never tasted them until recently. This surprises me because I’m all about spicy things to eat. Our annual family camping trip was a few weeks ago and between us and another two families, we all share the responsibilities of making dinner each night. The night before we left I was prepping some ingredients for packing and I came across these Gorgonzola Cheese and bacon poppers on Foodiecrush. They looked so simple to make and I had all of the ingredients in the fridge…I had to make them. I’m glad I did because they were really good.
I’m not going to lie, you’re shoving half of a chili straight into your mouth but there’s no need to freak out. As long as you remove all of those tiny white seeds inside the chili, then you should be okay on the heat spice-ometer. They still pack a tiny kick but the filling is so worth it, you should make them just for that. I promise you, it’s really difficult to stop at just one of these. The topping is a mixture of crushed Cheetos and sharp cheddar. Eat these along with some ice cold beer and extra Cheetos because those things are addictive!
