Macaroni and Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

We’ve seen a variation of this jalapeno poppers recipe in restaurants, basically big balls of macaroni and cheese deep fried, and hey, they’re pretty good, but when you get it all stuffed into a jalapeno pepper, the goodness increases a thousand fold.

NOTE: We tried this with leftover macaroni and cheese and it turned out just as delicious!


  • 10 jalapeno peppers
  • 5 ounces cooked macaroni and cheese (choose your favorite brand)
  • 5 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

Cooking Directions

  1. Remove stems from the jalapeno peppers and remove innards through the top with a pepper corer. If you do not have a corer, use a knife or very thin spoon.
  2. Stuff each jalapeno with layers of macaroni noodles and cheddar cheese.
  3. In a shallow bowl, beat the egg.
  4. Dip the stuffed jalapeno peppers into the egg, then coat with bread crumbs.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until peppers are heated through and turning golden brown.
  6. Serve with melted cheese over the top, or with a simple chili sauce for dipping. Or both!
