How to Make Red Jalapeño Peppers Stuffed with Cream Cheese & F


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add water, sugar and vinegar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add jalapeño peppers, cover with more water, increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer jalapeno peppers on a cutting board lined with paper towel; drain for 3 minutes. Put them up so the interior drain as well.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine with a fork cream cheese, feta and Italian seasoning. Using an immersion blender, pulse until well mixed. Transfer cream cheese mixture into a pipping bag or a large Ziploc. Place a pepper in a shot glass and fill it up. Transfer them to a container and top with about 1/3 of olive oil and 2/3 with grapeseed oil. Cover and transfer to the fridge for 48 hours before serving.
