My husband and I had a wonderful time preparing these together. We were a bit unsure if the sausage needed to be cooked ahead of time and from our experience it does not have to be cooked. They are so yummy! If you do not like really spicy foods you can substitue the whole jalapeno for a green chile pepper instead. You can also stuff the jalapenos with 1/2 cream cheese mixture and 1/2 montery jack cheese mixture. You have got to try this recipe anyway you decide to make it...



This was very dry and hard to handle. I added 1/3 cup milk to the batter and it worked very well. Also tried with Cream Cheese in the jalepenos and it was wonderful!



The batter needs about 1/2 cup of milk to make the it stick to the pepper and cheese. Just the right amount of spiciness for me.
