Cook macaroni in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.
Melt butter in a saucepan. Add jalapeño and garlic; cook until tender, about 3 minutes.
Whisk in flour and cook 1 minute. Whisk in milk to incorporate, then stir in Cheddar and American cheese.
Cook sauce, stirring frequently, until thick and cheese is melted. Stir in cooked macaroni; season with salt.
