No Super Bowl party is complete without the perfect appetizers.
Here is Guy Fieri’s stuffed jalapenos recipe that will spice up your party.
15 Jalapenos, preferably red, cut in half, seeded and deveined
1 tablespoon canola oil
¼ cup red onions, minced
¼ cup red bell pepper, minced
3 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 pound Italian turkey sausage, mild
12 ounces light cream cheese, softened
¼ cup Reggiano parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
2/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 300 degrees, and place jalapenos on a sheet tray and roast for 5 minutes, then remove and let cool.
In a medium sauté pan over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil and when hot, add onions and peppers and sauté until onions just become translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic, cook one minute more. Remove vegetables to bowl and add sausage to pan, cook 6-8 minutes or until done, breaking large pieces apart as it cooks. Drain fat from pan and place sausage in bowl with vegetables.
Let all hot ingredients cool to room temperature, fold in cream cheese, and parmesan, mix ingredients thoroughly.
Place approximately 1 tablespoon of mixture into half of jalapeno, and top with ½ teaspoon of mozzarella cheese and ½ teaspoon panko bread crumbs.
Place sheet tray of stuffed peppers in oven and bake at 300 for 5-8 minutes or until mozzarella cheese melts and panko crisps and is light golden in color.
