Servings 20 Stuffed Jalapeños

Ingredients
 

  • 10 medium jalapeños
  • ¼ pound fresh chorizo sausage, casings removed
  • 1 clove chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of allspice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
  • 2 teaspoons mild olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces shredded smoked cheddar cheese

Optional:

  • 1 tablespoon sour cream thinned with 1 tablespoon of lime juice or water

Instructions
 

  • In a medium saute pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sausage to the pan with the garlic, oregano and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring to break up the sausage, until it is cooked all the way through. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Cut the stems off of the peppers, and slit them lengthwise. Remove the seeds, then place cut side up in a baking pan. Mix the cheese into the sausage, then fill the peppers equally with the stuffing. They can be prepared up to this point, refrigerated, then continue on with step 3 when ready to serve.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 F. Place the baking dish in the oven, and let the peppers cook for 20 minutes until warmed through and slightly softened. Remove from the oven and serve, drizzling the sour cream if desired.
