Jalapeno Macaroni & Ham Bake

This weekend was our bi-weekly trip to the grocery store, which is a dreadful experience, but it has to be done. I shop by recipes, so I always pick out and put together a bunch of recipes that I want to cook for the two weeks ahead and then make a list of all the ingredients I'll need for these recipes. First up from this adventure is:

Jalapeno Macaroni & Ham Bake

What you'll need: 

2 packages Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
1 package chopped ham
1 small red onion, chopped
2 fresh jalapenos, seeds removed and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 eggs beaten
4 slices Kraft BIG Pepperjack cheese, chopped
18 Ritz crackers, crushed

To Make: 

Preheat the oven to 350. 
Prepare the macaroni as directed on packages. Meanwhile, cook the ham, onion, garlic and jalapenos together in a skillet. Add ham mixture together with prepared macaroni, eggs, chopped cheese and 1/2 the crushed crackers. Pour the mixture into a 3qt casserole dish and sprinkle remaining crackers on top. Bake for 30 mins and enjoy.  

It's always nice to have some help in the kitchen. Both my boys are such great helpers. Most nights, Caleb will help me prepare the meal and Ethan will help set the table.
