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.'"
