I like to top this classic macaroni and cheese with buttered bread crumbs before baking. To brown the bread crumbs a little more, turn the broiler on for a minute or so just before taking the casserole out of the oven. Watch carefully, though, for signs the topping is getting too dark.

Depending on the heat of the peppers, this casserole can be pretty spicy. Use only 1/2 can if you'd like a milder mac and cheese, or use mild green chiles along with a smaller amount of jalapeno peppers.
