I hit a home run with this recipe - my dad and brother both love spicy foods, so I knew this one had to make an appearance very soon.
|Pablano pepper on left, Jalapeno pepper on right|
Jalapeno pepper juice will burn your skin, so wear gloves when cutting and seeding them. Pablano peppers are "cooler" than Jalapeno, but every pepper's "heat index" depends on the individual pepper. Use a melon ball cutter to remove the seeds.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 1 lbs. ground sausage
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or Parmesan can be used as well)
- 1 lbs. Jalapenos, halved lengthwise and seeded
- 1-3 finely chopped green onions
If you're making these for male relatives/friends, you may want to double the recipe.
