80 jalapenos

on my lunch break i took a stroll on over to walmart in search of jalapenos. i purchased 80 and for a great cause.

you see the gilliland family loves to eat and my daddy is always finding (or making up) new recipes to try out on us.

several years ago he busted out a recipe for stuffed jalapenos and our family will never be the same.

usually you need about 20 jalapenos for a batch. start by cutting them in half (long-ways) and removing the seeds. i recommend that you wear gloves for this task or wash your hands ridiculously well afterward. if you do not you may have some serious burning taking place when you touch parts of your body (ie. your eye, nose, etc.)

only 3 more ingredients:
  • 1 lb of sausage
  • 1 8 oz package of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese

brown the sausage and drain the grease. combine the hot, cooked sausage with the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese. fill the seedless jalapeno halves with the yummy goodness. bake at 400 for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown on top. ENJOY!

bella and i are very excited that my daddy (her poppy) will be using these 80 jalapenos to create this magical food for us in just a few days!
