Jalapeño Popper Mac & Cheese

You may think we've gone a little crazy, but this bizarre recipe tastes amazing.

You know we love a plant-based mac & cheese recipe...and we have an abundance of them! But we always think up new ways to pimp up such a classic dish and... it works!

The mac is hearty and cheesy, and the jalapeños add a little kick. Feel free to add more or less jalapeños depending on how hot you like your food. This is comfort food at its finest!

A scrumptious plant-based lunch idea and also a great recipe for kids!
