Easy Baked Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

Submitted by: LIVESIMPLY1
Easy Baked Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    12 medium fresh jalapeño peppers
    4 oz. cream cheese, softened
    1 1/2 cup (6 oz.) finely shredded Cheddar**
    2-3 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
    Jalapeño pepper sauce (I use Trader Joe's)

    **Delicious with smoked Gouda also.
    If you want the baked peppers hot, mix in some pepper seeds with the cheeses.

Directions

Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds (reserve) & membranes. Cook peppers in boiling water 5 to 10 minutes ( for spicy, 5 minutes, for mild, 10 minutes). Drain well. Combine cheeses with bacon (and reserved seeds for hot peppers); heap into pepper halves and sprinkle with a couple drops of jalapeño pepper sauce. Place on baking sheet and bake in 400F oven for 5 minutes until cheese melts.

Number of Servings: 4

    These were really good and filling. Be sure not to over boil as the peppers easily get mushy and un-flavorful. The cream cheese helps to keep the cheese on the peppers nicely. They were a tad bit greasy and that's the only reason I didn't give them a 5 star. This is a keeper! - 1/3/09

    If you try using the smoked Gouda I think you'll find them less greasy.

  • I replaced the bacon with Hot Sausage (I do not care for bacon), and omitted the cheese. Cooked the cream cheese and sausage in a skillet and stuffed the whole (seeded & de-veined) pepper. I then baked for 45 minutes @ 400 degrees. Just a little variation. I got the recipe from ChiliGrill.com - 1/7/10
