I made this tonight and am eating it right now. I was not sure what "adobo seasoning" was, but I found something by Goya that had the word Adobo on it so I used that. I couldn't find any jalapeno powder so I used a whole jalapeno minced fine. I don't know what it would be like if you added the jalapeno powder, but just by adding the jalapeno it wasn't spicy at all. The flavor of the dish is really good, but when I went to serve it, there was a lot of runny liquid in the casserole. I think the next time I might leave out the cream and see if that helps. Also, the meatballs are very salty, there is a lot of salt in the adobo seasoning so the next time I will only use 1 Tbls of the seasoning. Instead of putting the meatballs on top of the dish, I cut them in half and mixed them in with the macaroni and cheese. The sauce is really good. I will definitely make this again, it's really good. UPDATE: the pasta must have absorbed the excess liquid because I ate the leftovers today and it wasn't too runny.
