Farrah's Jalapeno Poppers



A friend of mine made these for our weekly spades party and they were a big hit. I make them when ever I want something quick to snack on. Great taste with lots of flavor. And you can make them as hot or mild as you like. This recipe is very mild (not too much heat)

How to Make Farrah's Jalapeno Poppers


  1. Slice jalapenos in half (length wise) and remove seeds. Make sure peppers are nice and firm.

    **The seeds are what cause the peppers to be hot. Leave some seeds in the pepper if you want an extra kick.
  2. Cook sausage, onions and garlic together until sausage is brown and onions are tender.
    Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix softened cream cheese, all shredded cheese and "no salt" seasoning together.
    Add sausage and mix well
  4. Fill each pepper with cream cheese mixture and place on cookie sheet.
    I cover the rack in my toaster oven with foil and use it to bake the peppers. The peppers fit perfectly on the rack.This works well when making small amounts
  5. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 mins or until cheese is brown and bubbley
