Stuffed Jalapenos

What a surprise when I went to the garden this morning.  I found some HUGE jalapenos. 

Since we had already decided we would meet after yard work today for margaritas on the patio, I knew I had to make some stuffed peppers (the first of the season.)

Stuffed Jalapenos

3 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4  c. finely grated Colby/Monterey Jack cheese
1/4  c. garlic chili sauce or picante sauce or salsa (I used homemade sauce that my mom just canned.)
12 jalapeno peppers

 Wash jalapenos and split them down the middle.  Using a paring knife (or a fingernail!), carefully remove seeds and white ribs.     Blanch the peppers for 1 minute in boiling water and then immediately place in a ice-water bath.  Set aside to dry on a paper towel. )

Mix cream cheese, grated cheese, and sauce.  Place in a heavy duty freezer bag with a corner snipped off.   Fill each pepper with the cheese mixture.  Chill before serving.

I also use this mixture to stuff whole jalapenos and then we grill them.  Those are pretty tasty AND are a good pairing for margaritas as well!


This recipe made a lot more, but we ate quite a few!
