what you'll need

  • 9-10 large jalapeños
  • 1/2 lb chicken sausage
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste

let's do it

  • 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.
  • Remove casings from sausage and mix with cheese, until thoroughly combined. Fill peppers with approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of sausage 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 15-20 minutes. Transfer to serving platter and enjoy!
