1 or 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and -- finely minced. Sauté them with the onions
ham, thinly sliced or finely chopped bits

1. Preheat oven to 375 F.

thickens slightly. ( make a roux ) If sauce does not thicken, add in another
tablespoon of flour and butter.

7. Remove saucepan from hear; stir in 3/4 cup shredded cheese. Stir til
cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. put back on heat if needed to melt

with half of remaining cheese ( 1/8 cup ); repeat

9. Bake, covered 45 minutes.

10. Uncover and bake 15 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender.
