  • Salt
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 1/8 cup cannabis infused butter
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 3 large jalapenos 2 finely chopped and 1 thinly sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 4 ounces pepper Jack cheese shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/8 to1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs


  • Set an oven rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until al dente, about 5 minutes. Strain, reserving 1 3/4 cups of the pasta water. Set strained pasta and reserved water aside.
  • Melt the canna-butter and butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped jalapenos to the saucepan and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes; transfer to a small bowl and reserve.
  • Add the half-and-half to the saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it just comes to a simmer. Continue simmering until the half-and-half is reduced to 1 1/2 cups, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the cream cheese and stir until melted.
  • Whisk in the Cheddar and Pepper Jack until all the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  • Stir in the macaroni and reserved pasta water until mixture is well combined.
  • Season with cayenne, salt and pepper.
  • Pour into a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Don’t worry if things look soupy, the macaroni will absorb lots of sauce as it bakes.
  • Mix the panko crumbs with 1/4 cup melted butter.
  • Spread an even thin layer of buttered bread crumbs over the top of the pan.
  • Arrange jalapeno slices on top of the breadcrumbs.
  • Bake until filling is bubbly and topping of lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
