Delicious, and OH SOOO addicting!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These stuffed jalapenos have terrific flavor and just the right amount of kick. Each bite is a spicy and savory explosion in your mouth. The jalapenos are soft and juicy with a super cheesy filling. Once baked, the bread crumbs become a little crunchy. This is a delicious appetizer for any time of the year. They'll be delicious for a game night, tailgate, football Sunday, or Taco Tuesday. We dipped the stuffed jalapenos in ranch dressing that added a little extra zing.
