Jalapeno Peppers Stuffed
This is a most delicious appetizer! Whether you call it Jalapeno Poppers or Jalapeno Peppers, once you share it with family and friends they will request you to make it for every gathering.
Once the Jalapeno Peppers are cleaned-membranes and seeds removed-even people who don't especially like "hot" food really enjoy these. They are easy to make, can be prepared ahead of time and disappear as soon as they are served!
Tip for Cleaning Jalapeno Peppers
Cut the stems off the Jalapeno Peppers and slice them in half. Fill the sink and scrape the membranes and seeds out of the Jalapeno Peppers while submerged in water.
Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before touching your eyes or mouth!
