The Hungry Elephant

Ever try the Chili’s Pepper Jack Mac’n’Cheese from your local frozen food aisle? This is a bit spicier but same taste and I can’t get enough!!! It’s addicting, yet so not good for you (so eat in moderation)

Here’s the recipe, or watch the video below!

Pepper Jack (Nicholson) Mac’n’Cheese!

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 jalapeno chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar & monterey jack mix
  • 1 pkg (375g) macaroni


  1. Boil water and cook the macaroni.
  2. In the meantime, heat milk over medium heat, add in cream cheese and stir until dissolved.
  3. Add in flour and whisk continuously until the milk gets thicker. (Must stir otherwise it won't thicken and the milk will burn to the pot)
  4. Once thick, add in jalapeno & grated cheese... stir until cheese melts.
  5. In a casserole dish, toss in cooked macaroni.. then add the milk/cheddar mix.. stir until it's all mixed thoroughly. Bake at 350 for half an hour.
  6. Top with more jalapenos!
