Chilled Jalapeno Poppers

This post is not so much of a recipe as it is a suggestion.

With all the huge jalapenos coming on, it was time to make some appetizers for Sunday afternoon.  After canning all the pepper jelly, I was pretty much spent, but I needed to use more peppers.2013-08-25 17.33.09

I went with an old stand by recipe which is very versatile and can accommodate what you have (or don’t have) in the fridge.

For a more formal recipe, please head back to Fresh Jalapeno Poppers from about a year ago.

This is a super easy recipe:   Simply take a block of cream cheese, some salsa and some shredded cheese.   Throw it all in a food processor and whip it up.   You can also throw in diced jalapenos for more heat.

Blanch some jalapeno halves and stuff them.2013-08-25 17.04.08


If you want a hot appetizer, just place a sheet of foil on the grill and grill these up until toasty.   (You can also put them under a broiler.)

Sorry, this is not much of a post today but I am canning jalapenos and carrots tonight.

I have named her Charlotte. (Yep, pretty original.)

We have another one in the garden that I hope is eating its weight in white flies.
