Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers
Many recipes from Iron Dessert

Now this isn’t so much for how to stuff jalapenos, for that go here , it’s ideas for what to put in the jalapenos. We’ve tried just about everything you can think of, and most of them are pretty OK.

Jalapeno pepper preparation and cooking instructions .

And of course bacon over the top is essential.

If you’re using a fresh meat, you’ll need to poke a hole in the bottom of the pepper with a toothpick so it won’t be gooshy when it’s done.


Shrimp Jalapenos

1 shrimp for every pepper you’re fixin’ (20-30 count size)
Cream cheese

Shake some Tony’s on the peeled shrimp and stuff them head first into the jalapenos. Fill up the gap at the top of the jalapeno with cream cheese. Bacon on the top of this

one is mandatory. Poke a hole in the bottom of the jalapeno with a toothpick so it can drain as it cooks.

Old Stand By

1 lb. brick of Cream Cheese
1 lb. breakfast sausage

Fry up the sausage, drain good, and while it’s still hot, mix in the cream cheese.
Put in a pastry sack or old sock with a hole in the bottom and squeeze it into the jalapenos.
(Just kidding about the sock)

Super Easy

Coupla links of Boudin

Remove the casing from the boudin, slice in quarters lengthwise, and stuff in the jalapenos.
If it gets easier than this, someone else is making them.

You did What?!?

1 package of Cornbread mix
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
Some Super Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Mix up the cornbread and fill the jalapenos half full. Put a long square (1/4" sq. by 1 1/2" long) of cheese in the middle. A little salsa in the cornbread mix while you’re making

it is kinda good too.

Breakfast Jalapenos

2 eggs

Whip up the eggs and fill the jalapenos up, or half way and put in some cheese or sausage.

Pizza Peppers

Mozzarella Cheese
Tomatoes or tomato sauce
Italian seasoning

Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning in the jalapenos and fill with the ingredients any way you can get them in there. Careful, these will be kinda gushy when they’re done. You

can always stick a hole in the bottom of the jalapenos with a toothpick to let them drain.

Peanut Butter Peppers
(I didn’t like these, but others did)

Peanut Butter

Put the peanut butter in the jalapenos.

Meat Jalapenos

Put your choice of raw meat in the jalapeno. Be sure and poke a hole in the bottom of the jalapeno to let it drain while it cooks.

1 large vidalia onion minced
8 ounces queso blanco shredded
8 ounces queso fresco shredded
8 ounces cream cheese softened
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
About 30 jalapeno peppers prepped for stuffing

DeeBee’s Imperial Stuffed Jalapeños
1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 TB butter
8 ounces cooked salmon, cod, crab or tuna. (or your favorite cooked fish), flaked
1/3 - 1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 TB breadcrumbs
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 egg
1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp. baking powder

Poke a small hole in the bottom of each jalapeño. Sauté green pepper and onion in butter until soft. Add all other ingredients and stuff peppers. (I use a Zip Lock-style bag

and cut the corner off of it and ‘pipe’ the filling into the pepper). I have a 4-burner gas grill and set the Chile Grill on a two burner side that is set on Low and I turn up the other

2 burner side on med {closet to the peppers) and High (the side farthest from the peppers). It takes about 25 minutes to get the jalapeños cooked to perfection.

DeeBee’s Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Jalapeños

1 can (about 10-12 oz.) of cooked chicken, drained well and finely flaked (found near the tuna fish in your supermarket)
6 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup Louisiana hot sauce
1/4 cup bottled ranch dressing (or bleu cheese dressing)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
TOPPING: 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

Poke a small hole in the bottom of each jalapeño. (If you are used to seasoning the inside of your peppers with salt or Creole seasoning… don’t do it in this recipe) Cream the

cream cheese, hot sauce and dressing. Add the chicken and cheese and mix well. Pipe into peppers and grill. If desired, just before taking off of grill… top with a little

sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese… and let melt.

DeeBee’s Artichoke-Garlic Stuffed Jalapeños
1/2-cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2- cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
2 TB. grated Parmesan cheese (or Romano cheese)
1/2-cup mayonnaise
2 TB. minced onion
2 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced Dash of cayenne pepper
1 (6-oz. jar) marinated artichokes, drained and finely chopped

Poke a small hole in the bottom of each jalapeño. Mix all ingredients. Pipe into peppers and grill until done.

DeeBee’s Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Jalapeños

3 TB. Butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 TB. water
1 TB. flour
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry. (I use a potato ricer to get all the water out of the drained spinach… but you can use paper

4 ounces Cheez Whiz cheese product (or Velveeta)
1 jumbo egg, beaten

Poke a small hole in bottom of each pepper. Sauté butter and onion in pan until soft. Add water and flour and mix. Add spinach and cheese and stir until cheese is melted.

Add a little of the spinach-cheese mixture to the scrambled egg to temper it so egg won’t cook when added to mixture. Stir well. Now add egg to the pan and stir quickly until

all is blended. Pipe into jalapeños leaving a little space at top of pepper for this soufflé-type mixture to expand a little…and grill until done. NOTE: Frozen chopped broccoli

can be substituted for the spinach but you might have to give an extra chop to it to get it to fit easily into the peppers.


24 Jalapenos (fresh)
1 lb Owens sausage (regular)
3T Worcestershire Sauce
1 egg
¼ C finely shredded cheese (I usually add a little extra)
¼ C canned seasoned bread crumbs (I use Old London) I add a little more to take out some of the grease from the sausage.

Clean out the jalapenos. Mix all other ingredients together, stuff peppers, (poke a hole in the bottom of the pepper for the grease to drain), and grill or bake @ 350° for about

40 minutes.
