How to Make ~ Cass's Stuffed Banana Peppers ~
- In a small skillet, saute onion, jalapeño and ground beef, until beef is no longer pink, breaking beef apart as it cooks. Drain and cool.
In a medium bowl, mix tomato, cream cheese and cheddar together, stir in seasoning. Once beef mixture is cool, blend it into cheese mixture. Make sure everything is well combined. Set aside.
- Wash peppers and dry. Starting right below the stem of pepper, cut a slit lengthwise, but not completely through the other side of pepper. Carefully remove the seeds. (Should wear gloves when handling peppers) I didn't this time and am paying for it..lol!
Preheat broiler and move rack about 5 inches below flame.
