  • 8 ounces macaroni
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 2 jalapeños , seeded and finely diced (leave the seeds in if you want it hotter)
  • 1 large tomato , seeded and diced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese


  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, saute onion, jalapeño, and tomato together until onion and peppers are softened. Stir in the cumin, chili powder, and salt.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the butter, then whisk in the flour. Stir in the milk and cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in cheeses until completely melted and smooth.
  4. Once macaroni is done, drain, return to pot, and pour in the cheese sauce. Stir in the onion mixture. If desired, pour into an oven-safe dish or individual ramekins, top with crushed corn chips, and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Or, just eat as is!
