All you need are a few simple ingredients:

  1. Boil water (I used an 8qt pot), fry 4 strips of bacon in a pan, then set aside, keep the pan warm.
  2. Cook pasta (16oz I think), add a tbsp. of coconut oil to water, drain
  3. Melt 2 tbsp. butter in pot, add noodles, and about 1/2 cup white cheddar & 1/2 aged cheddar, stir and slowly add in 1/4 cup milk until it reaches creamy consistancy.
  4. Sauté deseeded (or seeded) jalapenos and green chilies in the bacon pan, then set aside on paper towels or strain away excess grease. 
  5. Combine, top with Pueblo Red hot sauce and Enjoy!
  6. Optional step - steam broccoli and dice to add if desired.
