Jalapeno Popper Macaroni Salad

Posted on


1 lb dried elbow macaroni pasta
1 cup canned jalapeños, chopped I prefer the mild version (can substitute with fresh chopped jalapeños as well)
1 cup cheddar cheese, cubed small (or shredded) (monterey jack or Colby jack are good as well)
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I like to use the canola oil mayo for a less calorie dressing)
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp cream cheese, room temperature
2 Tbsp lemon juice fresh is best
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
generous pinch of black pepper
fresh parsley, minced for garnish (optional)
