As I went through the photos, my eyes connected to my stomach and it made a slight rumble.  I really enjoyed these jalapeno stuffed feta treats and was happy I didn’t have to share them!  They may be made for sharing but you will not want to.   I could eat a batch all over again!

Jalapeno Stuffed Feta Cheese

One thing that I find about jalapenos is that their heat can vary from shop to shop.  Although they may look the same green crunchy peppers when you bite into them the heat can suddenly be surprising.  Normally I find them to be a pleasant heat.  However, recently I had one batch that was a heat explosion in my mouth.  It still didn’t deter me though as I ate my way through them.

    These look good and easy. Question – do you use feta crumbles or the block of feta?
