Can you say yummy! Now I need to dig out that new mac and cheese recipe I found and prepared. It was the bomb and it made a LOT. This is the perfect way to use some of it instead of freezing it all. I love jalapeno poppers and I cannot wait to try this. I have no need to wait for game day!

I can remember the first time I tried a Jalapeno popper and I thought my mouth would never stop burning, but it was so-o good. I have yet to try a maccheese bite but I love mac cheese so how can this recipe be nothing but great!

These look so very, very tempting. I love both mac and cheese as well as jalapeno poppers and having both in one treat is just my idea of snacking heaven. The video shows just how simple these are to make and I could easily see myself frying up a batch of them. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe! Any idea what the dipping sauce is that's shown at the end?
