We're heading to a couple Superbowl parties and the Bionic Man and I thought a jalapeno bacon wrapped stuffed jalapeno would be the best thing to take. I can make them all ahead of time and just pop them into the oven at our destination.
There are so many like recipes out there but I took it up a couple notches with the shallots, sausage, thyme and shot of Sriracha. You can make them as spicy or mild as you like and offer up a side of Ranch to dip. That'll help cool the tongue!
Rider's Stuffed Jalapeno's
- 10 jalapeno peppers, cut in half and seeded
- 1 lb pork sausage, cooked and crumbled
- 1 med. shallot, minced
- 1 pk cream cheese
- 1 T fresh thyme, minced
- 1/3 C cheddar cheese, grated
- 1/3 C fontina cheese, grated
- 1 T Sriracha (more or less for taste and heat)
Slice jalapeno's lengthwise and using a spoon, scrap out the seeds. I like to leave the stems on for looks.
Using a spoon, fill each jalapeno half with the cream cheese mixture then wrap each one with 1/2 piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on wire rack in baking sheet.
