Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapenos

Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapenos


"This is my rendition of the hottest appetizer in Baja. It's a great appetizer that takes the heat out of the peppers. In fact, I had an 80-year-old lady eat one and say, 'Oh my, this is the first time I have been able to eat a whole jalapeno.'"

Made these again for a Super Bowl Party. This time, I propped them up in a glass dish by making a wall out of aluminum foil, so the peanut butter stayed in better. Then I put them under the broiler for a few minutes to get the peanut butter crusty before lying them down in the dish to roast at 375. They're still great. First, I have to say that the entire office was skeptical of these. Some wouldn't try them when I made a few dozen of them. Those who did unilaterally were pleasantly surprised at how 'not awful' the results were. This is a terrific alternative to cheese-stuffed peppers and should be tried before judged. Super Bowl Sunday seems like a good time to experiment. Also, try sticking them, uncovered, under the broiler. I did them both ways and preferred those done under the broiler to those roasted in foil.


I couldn't bring myself to try it, but my guest who loves peppers ate them all. They were kind of messy to make, next time I'll put the peanut butter in a small zip lock and cut a small corner off and squeeze it into the peppers.


LOL...okay...I admit..I looked at this recipe and was way...but I made them and they are actually really good. The peanut butter takes on some of the taste and heat from the peppers. It reminds me of the peanut sauce you make for chicken saytay. Try it...different but good.
