  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, bacon bits, chives, and hot sauce. In a separate bowl, mix the uncooked sausage and Cheddar cheese. On a flat surface, mix the seasoned coating mix, cumin, and chili powder.
  3. Cut a slit lengthwise into each jalapeno pepper, and remove the seeds. Stuff the peppers with the cream cheese mixture. Press the sausage mixture around the stuffed jalapenos, and roll in the seasoned coating mix to coat.
  4. Arrange the coated jalapenos on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the sausage is evenly brown.

Way too much going on here. The filling is good but the sausage was difficult to mold around the peppers. I just didn't like the combination.

A huge hit!! They were fabulous. I didn't add the bacon to the cream cheese filling because I thought it was a little much. Also I used a split of hot sausage and mild. Be sure stuff the pepp...

My husband loved these! I used shredded bbq pork instead of sausage, and panko instead of bread crumbs... They turned out great.

I owed my hubby since he had been especially helpful with a project so I painfully made these for him since he is a native Texan and absolutely loves hot and spicy. What a labor of love. The two...

These are super! The guys love them and I am required to bring them to the Super Bowl party to be admitted! However, not really easy to make, but worth the effort.
