Things are heating up in the world of sports, seasons are coming to a close with the Sox vs. Cardinals in the World Series, and the first cold weather outdoor Super Bowl happening too, you will need these spicy Sausage Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers to warm things up! This delicious combination of creamy cheese, savoury sausage and spicy jalapeño peppers has never tasted so good. Dip it in your favourite ranch dip and you have a party snack that is a total touchdown. These were super easy to make. And they’re so easy to customize to your personal tastes, the combinations are endless.
These Jalapeño Poppers are also a fantastic make-ahead snack. They can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week. Pull a few out when you have the nibbles. Or freeze them in an airtight container with waxed paper between the layers for up to a month.
The way you prepare the jalapeños depends on how you want to cook them. You can cut off the tops and remove the seeds, leaving the peppers whole. You would need to use a Chili Pepper Grill Plank. If you don’t have one, you can remove the tops and slice the peppers in half, lengthwise. You can still fill the peppers up and grill them, and you have twice as many. You can put the peppers directly on the cooking grids or onto a baking tray for grilling with this method.
I actually made these for a Halloween party over the weekend. It was spooky how quickly they disappeared. I didn’t have a grilling plank, so I sliced them in half and grill-baked them. These Sausage Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers also went well with home made salsa. But however you eat them, you will love them. Leave a comment and tell us how your Jalapeño Poppers turned out. What was the occasion that you served them for?
