60 Mins



1 cup milk

1/2 cup water

3/4 cup dry macaroni

¼ tsp each salt and pepper

1/4 cup cream cheese

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1 tsp Dijon mustard

½ cup chopped thickly sliced Schneiders Original Smoked Ham

1 Schneiders All-Beef Wiener, finely diced

16 jalapeno peppers

½ cup panko bread crumbs

1 tbsp olive oil


In saucepan, heat milk, water and macaroni over high heat until simmering; reduce heat and cook, uncovered, until macaroni is al dente and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in cream cheese, Cheddar cheese and mustard. Stir until melted and smooth. Stir in ham and wieners; set aside.

Meanwhile, slice jalapenos in half, lengthwise. Scrape out seeds and membranes, leaving stems intact. Arrange on baking sheet. Toss panko crumbs with oil until moistened. Spoon mac and cheese mixture into pepper halves. Sprinkle with panko mixture. Bake in 400°F oven until peppers are soft and panko is golden, about 30 minutes
