i make this recipe for parties and bbq's its always a big hit. the peppers are spicy without being overpowering and they go a long way because with the sausage on the outside they are a mouthful or two. lol. hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as my friends and family do. enjoy!

prep time 25 Min
cook time 35 Min


  •   10 or 12 medium
    jalapeno peppers
  •   2
    rolls of sausage ( i like jimmy dean mild)

    bag shredded taco blend cheese

  • 3
    wash and de-seed your jalapeno peppers. tip: u may want to wear rubber gloves or your hands will burn from the peppers.
  • 4
    stuff the peppers with cheese, i prefer the taco blend but you can use whatever shredded cheese u prefer.
  • 5
    roll each pepper in a large enough sausage patty to cover the whole thing. try not to leave any gaps or holes or your cheese may leak out.
