Baked Stuffed Jalapeños Recipe

Baked Stuffed Jalapeños Recipe
Are you a risk taker? I think one has to be a bit adventurous to eat jalapeños. You never know if biting into one is going to yield that wonderful flavor and kick that is the basis for so much of Southwestern food, or if that one little bite will pack such a fiery punch that you’ll be running around the room mouth agape and tears in your eyes, begging for something to cool it all down. If you find that the pepper you’ve bit into is just too hot for your tongue, cool it off with sour cream, milk, or cream cheese. That’s the trick, and the reason why cheese is so often paired with hot chiles. There’s something in the milk protein that lessens the impact of the capsaicin (the molecules that give chilies their heat). The other good reason why stuffed jalapeños are filled with cheese is they taste good that way! Do you have a favorite stuffing for stuffed jalapeños?

Crispy dogs with bacon-jalapeño dipping sauce “How you feel about crispy dogs?” asked a friend from San Antonio.

I know, I know—that stuff isn’t even a proper dairy product. Potato Skins 1 Bake the potatoes: Scrub the potatoes clean then bake the potatoes using your favorite method, either oven or microwave. If using an oven, pierce a few times with a sharp knife or the tines of a fork, rub with olive oil and bake in a 400°F oven for about an hour until the potatoes are cooked through and give a little when pressed. If using a microwave, pierce the potato a few times with a sharp knife of the tines of a fork, rub all over with olive oil and cook on the high setting for about 5 minutes per potato. I have found that baking the potatoes in a conventional oven yields potatoes that are easier to work with (cut and scoop out), the potato seems to adhere to the skins a little better, but there is hardly a discernible difference in the final product.

I’ve seen others label these bacon-wrapped jalapeños as armadillo eggs, too.
