Hmm..don’t sit too long at my house because I just might stuff you in a Jalapeno..lol! Yeah, it’s getting that ridiculous! However, you have to admit, anything shoved inside a Jalapeno, or Green Chile is awesome..right?..RIGHT!
Soo, I’m gearing up for yet another round of trash TV watching, and that means S.N.A.C.K.S! Taco Stuffed Jalapenos totally make me forget that I have no Kardashian shame!
These delicious bites are everything you know and love about Tacos, lovingly stuffed & baked into spicy Jalapenos. They’re then topped with crunchy crushed Tortilla Chips, and Cheese! Oh..and some Sour Cream close by..just in case! I always plop a bottle of hot sauce on the table for those who like
to show off it Hhhot!
Make a batch PRONTO!
What you’ll need for 30 Stuffed Peppers a.k.a. enough for maybe 2 grown men..lol (Make Lots):
15 Jalapeno Peppers (FYI..Roasted & Peeled Green Chiles will work GREAT for these as well..just stuff, bake and serve!)
1 lb Ground Beef (I used Lean)
1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 Cups crushed Tortilla Chips (not shown)
1 Cup Shredded Lettuce
Sour Cream for dipping
A bottle of Hot Sauce..somewhere on your table!
Go to the potty, scratch your eyes, hug your children, pet the dog!
NOW..you may slice the Jalapenos lengthwise and scrape out all of the seeds and veins..set them aside…
In a Zipper Bag, crush up those chips…
In a medium pan cook up the beef with the Taco Seasoning packet, let it cool slightly…
Add it to a medium bowl and stir in 1-1/2 cups of the Shredded Cheddar..
Stuff each jalapeno half with about a tbsp. of the Beef/Cheese mixture…
Sprinkle them with some crushed Chips..and sprinkle them up goood…
Now sprinkle them with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese, yeah that’s right…
Get those babies into the oven and bake them at 350 for about 25 minutes…GO WASH YOUR HANDS!
They’re ready when the Peppers are soft, slightly charred & the Cheese is melty! Let them cool..if you can!
Ahhh..they look SO yummy…
Spice them up with Hot Sauce, if you dare…
…Now Dig IN! ~Enjoy! :) ..and go wash those hands!
