Each bite of this Cheetos-fied mac delivers the creaminess of melted cheese, a crunch of bacon and a jalapeño kick. Prepare to get your paws messy, because this holiday is about to get Dangerously Cheesy®!

  1. Drizzle a bit of oil in a large saucepan, add the bacon and bring the pan to medium heat. Stir the bacon occasionally. When it’s crispy, remove it from the pan and drain it on paper towels. Do not discard the bacon fat!
  2. Add butter and onion to the pan with the fat, season with salt, and cook until the onion is soft and aromatic, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the flour and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, frequently stirring. Slowly whisk in the milk, season with salt, boil and reduce to a simmer—Cook over low heat for 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook for 1 minute less than the instructions on the package suggest. Drain the pasta and reserve.
  4. Add the cheddar, fontina, and Parmesan to the milk mixture and whisk to combine. Add the mustard and chopped jalapeños and adjust the seasoning if needed, adding a little more milk if the combination seems too thick. Stir in the cooked bacon and pasta.
  5. Transfer the mac to a 4-quart casserole dish and put in a broiler for about five minutes or until the top is crunchy.
  6. Sprinkle generously with the lightly chopped Cheddar Jalapeño CHEETOS® to make that dish Insta-worthy.
