Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, and flour. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 8 minutes. Pour in the wine, half-and-half, and jalapeno cheese food. Bring to a simmer; add the crawfish tails and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Season with Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into a 9x13 inch casserole dish, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and the dish is bubbly, about 20 minutes.

  • While the crawfish is baking, fill a large pot with lightly-salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccini and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Serve the crawfish over the hot pasta.

This was absolutely delicious! I couldn't find any jalapeno cheese so I added a can of Rotel to Velveeta cheese instead. It came out so creamy and yummy!! This is definitely a keeper!! Read More

Add a tablespoon of mashed capers (releases flavor) and mince bell pepper two cloves chopped garlic three medium green onions and saute lightly before adding the heavy cream. Bring cream to frothy simmer until slightly thickened turn heat to low and add two bars of chopped jalapeno cheese (use habenero cheese if available and if you dare). Stir until cheese melts then add chopped cooked chicken breast (or crawfish or shrimp and or crabmeat and or chopped oysters for a truly over-the top-dish). Garnish with rough chopped toasted pecans after adding sauce to cooked fettuccine. Easier than it may sound and results in a truly gourmet dish that will easily earn five stars! Read More
