    Lande Hoffman's Note:

    This recipe came from taste testing poppers all over. I combined what I liked and discarded the rest. You can use fresh peppers or prepackaged peppers (not recommended,to soft). If I use fresh, I sometimes like to slice them in half, leaving the stem, de-vein and seed them and saute' them in my favorite beer to soften them up just a little (2-4 minutes). Another tip is to always use protective cooking gloves when dealing with peppers.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 18 fresh fresh jalapeno peppers
    • 6 ounces cream cheese
    • 3 ounces of shredded cheese (cheese of your choice or any mixture, I use 2 or more of the following parmesan, cheddar, colby, ric)
    • progresso breadcrumbs
    • 1 clove pressed garlic
    • 1/2 ounce olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
    • 1/2 teaspoon chopped cilantro (optional)
    • 12 slices pimientos, finely chopped
    • 3 pinches cayenne pepper (1tablespoon or to taste)

    Optional additions

    • 1 ounce finely chopped mushroom (optional)
    • 2 -3 ounces of finely chopped cooked meat (crawfish,ground meat or sausage) (optional)
    • queso sauce (optional)
    • sour cream (optional)
    • picante sauce (optional)
    • ranch dressing (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Halve the jalapenos leaving the stem attached, de-vein and seed them.
    2. 2
      Setting the halved jalapenos and bread crumbs aside, mix all of the other ingredients together.
    3. 3
      Take your mixture and completely fill the jalepeno cavities to their brim and set aside.
    4. 4
      Put bread crumbs on a flat plate.
    5. 5
      Take jalapeno halves, one at a time, and roll cheese side only in bread crumbs and place cheese/crumb side up on a baking pan Once completed if you like a thick crumb layer, you can repeat this step.
    6. 6
      If you do not intend to bake finished product skip the rolling part and just lightly sprinkle the top of the jalepenos with the bread crumbs.
    7. 7
      Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until mixture starts to bubble.
    8. 8
      I like to refrigerate at least 1 hour prior to baking Sometimes I prepare the day before, cover and refrigerate.
    9. 9
      Serve warm, room temperature or chilled with any or all of the recommended sauces.

      I made these for dinner tonight. I used low fat cream cheese, the optional cilantro and the optional mushrooms. I used 9 jalapeno and 9 mini sweet peppers because we have some members of our family who can not stomach hot things. I also reduced the cayenne pepper to one pinch. I wanted to make sure that it had flavor but not heat. I didn't have the called for bread crumbs so I used a mix of panko and fresh ground Italian seasoning. While they took longer to cook than called for, they were a success. We served them with some hickory smoked Sloppy Joe's. Yum!

      These were really hot, I was afraid it was too much cayenne (used a full tablespoon), but the Cajun folks at the party couldn't get enough. I followed the suggestion of sauteing the peppers in beer first, I left out the pimientos, and used a mixture of colby jack and cheddar (in addition to the cream cheese).

      these did not turn out very well but i will contribute that to me being in a hurry and short on ingredients, rather than the recipe. i didn't have nearly enough cream cheese so I made up for it with mozerella, ricotta, and parmesan. I also did not saute the peppers as suggested. Mine turned out bland and too dry. but i will try them again soon and actually follow the recipe which seems pretty sound.
