  • 12 large jalapeños
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Mexican cheese blend shredded
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Wash the peppers. Slice them length wise in half and remove the seeds and white membranes. Set aside.
  • To a large bowl add ground beef, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, onion and mix with cheese, until thoroughly combined. Fill peppers with approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of beef mixture. The bigger the pepper, the more filling you will use. Secure the pepper with a toothpick pierced through the middle if necessary for the jalapeño to hold its form. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place peppers on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle a bit more cheese over poppers. Return to oven until cheese melts. Transfer to serving platter and enjoy!
