Spicy Jalepeno, Hot Sausage and Chorizo Mac and Cheese


1 lb mezze penne pasta
8 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
8 oz chorizo sausage
8 oz hot sausage
2 cups half-and-half
8 oz Velveeta cheese, cut into small cubes
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar, shredded
1 cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded
2 eggs, beaten
2 jalepenos, seed and ribs removed, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 350F.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta; cook until al dente. Drain and return to pot.

Add the butter and stir until melted.

Heat a small skillet over medium high heat. Add the chorizo and hot sausage to the skillet. Break up into small pieces and cook until brown.

Add the half and half, Velveeta, 1 cup of the sharp cheddar and ½ cup of the mild cheddar to the pasta. Stir together, then fold in the cooked sausage and jalepenos.

Spray a shallow serving dish (sized approximately 13 x 9) with nonstick cooking spray. Pour in the macaroni mixture and top with remaining cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes.
