Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Stuffed Jalapeño Peppers – spicy, tasty and a must for your party!

Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

I absolutely love these green hot peppers! Unfortunately, they are really hard to find fresh here in the UK. So you can understand my excitement when I found these spicy beauties in one of my local shops – all fresh, dark green and just waiting to be picked up. 🙂 This is what I did. I actually got quite a lot but used them all up. We had an absolute feast with these – added them (like lots of them!) on BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos(I really wanted to share the recipe with you but it was a very late Sunday night and we were just getting ready to watch a movie and all I wanted was to dive in this super yummy tray with nachos :-), but I promise I’ll share the recipe soon. 🙂 Ok, where was I..? Apart form using the jalapenos on almost everything I also made some stuffed ones which turned absolutely amazing. We all love jalapeno poppers but I wanted to try something a bit different that would be tasty and perfect for entertaining friends and family( the festive season is coming!).

I made salsa with tomatoes, peppers & avocado. The yellow peppers I used taste very different to the jalapeño so it worked fine (in case you’re wondering 🙂 ). Then I added some juicy shrimps that I simply sweated a bit with garlic. Of course, everything was finished up with some cheese. Pop it in the oven for a few minutes and enjoy!

A quick tip or two: To take some of the heat off of the peppers serve with sour cream. Also, take care when deseeding and cutting these hot beauties, meaning use gloves. I remember years ago, cutting kilos of them without using gloves. Not a good idea, I was on fire, literally, I even thought going to the hospital. Luckily my hands were on fire for a few hours only. People learn from their mistakes, right! 🙂
