Stuffed jalapeno peppers are filled with cream cheese and baked with a topping of melted cheese. A delicious combination of spicy and creamy.
These are just so morish and everytime I make them I wish I had made more. Quick to make, quick to eat. I use cream cheese and Montery Jack cheese but you could use other cheeses and spices. These are a great snack or starter. I might have to nip out and buy a kg of jalapenos as I have a yearning for them now...
Stuffed jalapenos are a great low carb appetiser or snack. It's as simple as filling them with cream cheese and topping them with a cheese that will melt and crisp. I have used Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese but any cheese that melts well in the oven will do.
