Family Favorite-Stuffed Peppers

Spicy or mild, creamy or crunchy... these are delicious!

The Good: These are incredible easy, great as an appetizer, carry-in dish or holiday hors d'oeuvre.
The Bad: If you decide to reheat these expect them to get gradually hotter.
The Ugly: Unfortunately the peppers do not come with a spicy thermometer so it can be guess work to know if they will be spicy or not.

Suggestions before starting:
If you are someone who does not like spicy foods, feel free to use another type of pepper or taste test your peppers before using the bunch.
The first time I had this recipe it was not spicy at all but the second time it had a bit of a kick.
Adjust the cream cheese and sausage to your taste.  I love cream cheese so I added more than Dave (Wicked Chef 2) would.
All of the quantities are approximations.

Recipe Total Time: 20-30 minutes
Recipe Yields 5-10 Servings
Preheat oven to 350

1 lb jalapenos
1 lb Chorizo or Italian sausage
1-1.5 pkg cream cheese

  1. Wash peppers and slice in 1/2 the long ways.
  2. Remove all the seeds and insides of the peppers and set aside.
  3. In a medium pan brown your sausage.
  4. Once your sausage is fully cooked add the desired amount of cream cheese.
  5. Spoon filling into the peppers and place on a cookie sheet or pan lightly greased.
  6. Bake for 10-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted at 350.

As promised I made these this weekend. They were a huge hit. Afraid our tummies will make us pay later but who cares they are scrumptious. I used sweet italian sausage to help balance the heat. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Thanks again!
