My boyfriend is a turd:) and didn’t tell me he drank the rest of my milk, so I had to improvise with my mac and cheese bake. It was actually really tasty. It has a big onion taste so if you don't like alot of onion, beware. :)

Ingredients

1 16oz. pkg
elbow macaroni or penne
2 can(s)
cheddar cheese soup
2 c
colby jack cheese, shredded, more if you like it extra cheesy
1 c
sour cream
yellow mustard to taste
pepper, garlic powder to taste
1/2 to 1 can(s)
canned corn
1/2 c
pickled jalapeno, diced (optional)
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pkg
french fried onions
1 pkg
real bacon bits

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook pasta as directed on box, drain and set aside.
2
In the same pot used for the pasta, mix the soup, colby jack, sour cream, mustard, pepper and garlic powder. You can heat it on medium while stirring if you want the colby jack melted, but I just mixed it enough to get the sour cream and soup totally mixed together, so there were still visible shreds of cheese.
3
Add the corn and jalapenos and stir until evenly distributed.
4
Take your cooked pasta and mix with cheese sauce. Pour into a 9x13 baking pan and sprinkle the cup of cheddar cheese on top.
5
Place in oven at 350 and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove and sprinkle the onions and bacon bits on top. Place back in oven for 10 minutes.
6
Let cool and enjoy. :)
