I’m back!!

 

How was your weekend?  Great I hope. I had a amazing time with my family filled with lots of laughter, new memories, and great food.  I love the few times out of the year we get to spend together being that each family is extremely busy and each live in different states.  I had a blast watching all the men sitting together in one tiny room having a couple of beers and cracking each other up, seriously do men ever grow up?  Too funny.  So what do we feed these silly men of ours?  Hearty Hearty Hearty…our men can eat.  We whipped these stuffed jalapenos up one night and they were happily devoured.  There is many versions of these stuffed jalapenos. Versions include jalapenos being stuffed with cream cheese or mashed potatoes even tomatoes.  Our men like the “meat factor” of sausage and bacon.  You can grill them or with this extreme heat pop them into the oven.  To remove the seeds I find using a grapefruit spoon works really well and please do not rub your eyes after working with the jalapenos, trust me I have done this many times it is not fun. 

 

Enjoy! Sweetlife

I’d like to send out extra love filled hugs to Jenn from Chinese Baba  formerly know as Defunkt Gourmet for sending me such a lovely little pkg filled with great treats and a AWESOME cd of music, love ya girl!!

Also special Texas kisses to Stella for featuring my agua de sandia with a lavender twist from her prize pkg, she even included a shot of the box I sent her with a Texas sticker, love it!! 

And of course all of your lovely selves who continue to visit me, even when I am totally offline, I appreciate you and send out best wishes.

  5. This recipe is seriously the easiest popper recipe I’ve ever came across, and they cook easily and taste great! However, 2 things: 1. make sure you don’t use aluminum foil on your baking pan unless you want to eat shards of it from the poppers getting stuck, & 2. I have no idea what kind of mountain of stuffing you put in your poppers, but that much meat and cheese is easily enough for about 25-30 whole jalapenos (meaning 50-60 half slices).

    • Thanks for trying out the recipe B! I agree they are the easiest to amke and everyone loves them! I do stuff mine pretty heavily, but any left over meat I save for breakfast the next day. thanks for stopping by!

  7. Do you cook the sausage before stuffing the jalopenos with it?

    • Hi Kelly,

      No cooking required, they will bake for 20 minutes..cooking the sausage and crisping the bacon (crisping, is that a word?) Let me know hwo they turn out.

  8. These sound amazing, I am going to make them for the Superbowl Party this weekend. I know this crowd will devour them.

  9. My husband makes one of the cream cheese versions, but these sound yummy. He always wears gloves to protect his hands when preparing the jalepenos:-) Also, can pound chicken flat and put a piece under the bacon…

  14. I made these last night for a friend’s birthday party. I used chorizo and a Mexican cheese blend. I made 40 and they were gone in no time flat. I did get to eat one, seriously, just one and it was awesome.People could not stop eating them and I got crazy good compliments. Thank you for the recipe!

  16. Awww… It sounds like you had a lovely time with you family :)

    These bacon wrapped jalapenos look amazing, I have some extra jalapeños in the fridge so I’ll definitely be making these. They’d make a perfect side for leftovers of the spicy Mexican beef I made in the crock pot yesterday :)

  17. These look delicious. I have to try these! Thanks for the great recipe.

  18. Oooooh, those look so good! I actually got my husband to look at the picture and make a comment other than “Yes, dear…” (he’s watching baseball).

  19. That looks APPETIZING – I love the first photo and the second….welcome back!

  20. I am sold. I have NEVER heard of doing this – yet it is so logical and looks so delicious… MAN FOOD! Beautiful photographs, too.

  30. I’m so glad you’re back and that your vacation was awesome! No in my experience, men do not ever grow up. Sometimes it’s a pro, sometimes it’s a con.

    But let’s focus on the positive. Like these jalapeno bites of deliciousness. Amazing.

  31. Great idea, it looks very tasty!

  32. Aghh, I went wandering yesterday and was attracted by a heap of jalapenos, but couldn’t think for the life of me what to do with them, so i didn’t get any ><".
    Haha, I know a number of females who would devour these in seconds, they look gooood.

  33. I like the addition of sausage in these. When I made these in the past, I stuffed them with herbed goat cheese. They’re always a huge hit, no matter what they’re stuffed with!

  34. Hubby would absolutely LOVE these! he always complains that food isn’t quite spicy enough. I bet he wouldn’t with these! :D

  35. Welcome back Bonnie! How do you keep coming up with these simple but awesome treats? I LOVE everything you put into these! God – I’d need close to a dozen to be satisfied :P

    Jenn and Stella are just the sweetest!

  36. Oh my God..if my husband sees these…Im dead. I’ll be making bacon wrapped popper till they come out my ears! He loves poppers and he’d just about anything if it was wrapped in bacon!

  37. Oh my sis will love that. And what better than bacon wrapped jalapenos with peanut butter. she loves bacon and the chillies and peanut butter to sooth a little kick from jalapenos.

  38. These stuffed jalapenos are mouthwatering. The stuffing of spicy sausage and cheddar is just perfect.

  39. Welcome back :) These look amazing, my boys would die for these, especially my older son…Love jalapeño and is insane for bacon…Beautiful!

  40. Great to hear you had a great time with family. These goodies are not just for the guys. Love your bacon wrapped jalapenos. xo

  41. The filling sounds fantastic with cheddar & sausage and just perfect wrapped in bacon!

  42. another unique dish from you! you are truly amazing! it was an awesome weekend for me. really relaxing!

  43. I am so glad that you were able to have such a wonderful time with your family. And isn’t it wonderful to feed men? They eat so much and they love it all. These jalapenos could please anyone though. What a wonderful recipe to share with us!

  44. Welcome back! Glad you had such a great time! Jalapenos…peanut butter? DessertForTwo – crazy!

  45. You had me at bacon wrapped! I can’t quite remember that far back, but I’m pretty sure my husband wooed me with something like this! LOVE IT!

    Okay, I’m being silly. I’ve been that way for about two days now-I don’t know what’s come over me actually;)
    This is such a good idea, Bonnie. My Cauldron Boy would love it if I did something like this. We have organic jalapenos growing outside too! I’m thinking the same recipe just with turkey meat. I’m doing it!
    Glad you had such a nice time, Bonnie. My Mom’s going to be here in about an hour actually, so I’m hoping for Rodriguez family functionality (smile but seriously)…

  53. mmmmmm….your version sounds fabulous! I bet they’d be killer stuffed w/ chorizo!!! I always just make them w/ cream cheese- I’m totally gonna have to mix it up next time. Mashed taters sound great too…I’m hungry!

      sweetlife

  54. This is such a Texas classic! Have you ever heard of stuffing the jalapenos with peanut butter? Sounds strange, but we love it!
