Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese

Our Southwestern riff on mac and cheese turns up the volume with fiery jalapenos and sweet corn kernels. The pasta's cooked right in the sauce, so it couldn't be simpler. Be sure to try all our delectable variations next: Classic Mac, Mushroom-Fontina Mac, Bacon Mac, and Primavera Mac.

    This was delicious! The jalapenos, corn and scallions were excellent additions. I had no problem with the pasta cooking (it took five minutes for al dente), but my sauce was closer to boiling than simmering, as the recipe stated.

    I am a very experienced cook and, after reading this recipe, I should have known better. Instead of simmering and stirring for six minutes, I simmered and stirred, adding additional milk, for 40 minutes. The macaroni simply refused to cook. And the end result was completely unimpressive even though I used excellent quality cheeses. This experience ruined dinner for us and exhausted me. Do NOT try this at home!!!
