Easy Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 5 min.
Great tip on boiling to remove some of the heat!!! My garden jalapeños are painfully hot this year. I boiled the halves for 5 mins and they’re perfect, still some heat but not painful. Yummy recipe!!!!
I made these for a Christmas Eve party. Did the recipe exact. I wanted them hot when everyone got there so I stuffed the peppers the night before and then cooked them when the party started. They were wonderful.
Too plain as written since I omitted the bacon. I added salt, garlic and onion powder. Also, I DID NOT BOIL MY PEPPERS which helps the pepper stay firmer (not mushy) in the oven. A firmer pepper not only taste better but also holds in the cheese mix better.Tip:Buy larger peppers so its easier to stuff.Make sure you allow your cheeses to come to room temperature before attempting this recipe to save yourself some aggravation.
I topped them with Planko bread crumps, then a quick spray of oil. This adds a nice crunch.
I only boiled them for about 3 minutes -- I wanted them to still have that jalapeno bite. I chopped some jalapenos (in a jar) and added this to the cream cheese mixture. Got the spice back into them. Next time, I'll try this without boiling them at all. Easy recipe.
Tasty recipe, but I don't recommend boiling them. It isn't needed. I used very hot peppers: I tasted one raw, and it set my mouth on fire, and I have a very high tolerance for spicy. Simply baking them reduced the heat to a very tolerable level. Boiling would ruin them, by removing all bite, and making them mushy, IMO. The recommendation to wear gloves is spot on, though. I didn't, and even after a thorough hand washing, I touched my face and it burned for about an hour.
Cooked peppers less than 5 min. Were very mild. Like them very much.
I thought the peppers were too mushy and weren't hot at all. Why even use jalapenos if you take all the flavor out of them, use a green pepper if that's what you want. I may try again without boiling first and see if it keeps the peppers firmer and tastier.
This is my new favorite jalapeno popper recipe. I love how boiling the jalapenos for just a few minutes really tones down the heat. I have tried charring them in the past but this works best for me. Thanks for posting this recipe.
Tried these for Super Bowl VERY GOOD!! I doubled the recipe and did a bag of the little sweet peppers for those who don't like Jalape?os. They were great!
