Baked Cheese Stuffed Jalapeños

Football season is in full swing, which means having a good (indoor) tailgating recipe or two under your belt in necessary. 
Here's one I whipped up the other day that was dangerously good:

What You'll Need to Make it Happen:
*makes 10 halves
- 5 small Jalapeños
- 4 ounces cream cheese 
- 1 ounce shredded co-jack cheese (but almost any kind would do!)
- 1 tsp chives
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 tsp paprika

How to Make it Happen:
Step 1: Cut your jalapeños in half and de-seed fully.
Step 2: Mix all the rest of your ingredients together in a bowl.
Step 3: Fill each jalapeño to the brim with your cream cheesy mixture.
Step 4: Bake in a 350 degree oven on tinfoil for 15-20 minutes. Check after 10 minutes to make sure they aren't burning! Once they're brown and bubbling, you're good to go!
Step 5: Let cool for a few minutes so you don't totally burn your mouth off- and enjoy!

I know they aren't the most beautiful or appetizing lil guys, but they are delicious! Oh, and for you spicy-phobes out there: removing the seeds and baking takes a lot of the spice out of these peppers, so even you might like them!

What's a great tailgating recipe you know?
Share in the comments, I'd love to hear!

  1. I can't say I'm a jalapeno fan, but I'll eat anything with cream cheese and cheese in it. Yum!

  2. I've never actually had a jalapeno so I have no idea if I can tolerate the heat level but these look so yummy that I'd take the risk ;]

    1. Jalapenos vary in their heat level. If they have striations (like stripes) on them, they are hotter.

  3. Yum! I love spicy food and cheese, so this is ideal. I am a huge sucker for chili in the fall too!


  4. I'm with Alyssa... Not a huge jalapeno fan, but these look good!

  5. I make these even simpler by using only sharp cheddar as filling. I love them especially as a snack. I will consider your version when I have some cream cheese. I do have some now but it is jalapeno flavoured!
