Homemade Jalapeno Poppers

Start off by taking some peppers

about 6 large or 10 medium

REAL jalapenos

cut them in half the long way

remove the seeds (leave a few if you want to live dangerously!)

{now is the time NOT to touch your eyes, etc.) as it will

(just sayin’)

‘pop’ (hardy har har) these in the oven cut side down at 400 degrees for a couple minutes to soften and start browning them (watch em to so they don’t burn but til they get toasted enough to your liking)

I like em a little bit black and charred myself

Now mix the


1 package cream cheese

3 cups shredded colby jack cheese

a dash of hot sauce (if ya like!)

Stuff the filling inside the browned peppers

see I used a baby spoon to get the good stuff
in all the little spaces!

{I knew I kept that baby spoon for a reasonable reason!}

Back in the oven they go for another couple minutes until the cheese melts and they are warmed through

{you MIGHT just HAVE to test it to make sure they’re done)
