Do you just love cheddar peppers? I mean, those little appetizers that you can get at Sonic and so many other restaurants that are cheese filled peppers, deep fried to a golden brown and delicious with a good ranch sauce?
I do love a good cheesy jalapeno and I’ve always wanted to make my own but those things can be hard to do. Well, until now. I found a fabulous stuffed jalapenos recipe that I think you are going to love.
The best part of this recipe? It’s super easy and these little spicy stuffed jalapenos are dressed up for Halloween! You use black food coloring to give them little faces and make them so spooky that even your kids are going to love them.
These are great for your Halloween party table or just make them as a neat little appetizer before dinner one night. Your entire family is going to love them. They’re super simple to make, and they only take about half an hour from start to finish.
These are great to go along with sweet tortilla soup or any other entrée that you want to pair them with.
You just won’t believe how adorable and easy these jalapenos are to make. If you love cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers, you are really going to love these. And, because you bake these instead of frying them, they’re a lot healthier than traditional poppers, too.
I made these in the middle of the week just to try them out and my family loved them. And, it was the middle of the week, so I really didn’t have a lot of time. These take so very little time to make – I just love them!
And, you can make these for an appetizer and then finish up your meal with these chocolate chip brownies and your family will love it.
