Recipe

I am in love with these adorable cornbread stuffed jalapenos. They are incredibly simple to make and make the perfect snack or side dish. I am planning on serving them alongside some chili instead of basic cornbread. You can mix virtually anything into the cornbread mix cheese, green onions, creamed corn, bacon, pineapple you name it. I personally like adding in some sweetness with the cranberries which I think pair perfectly with the spiciness of the pepper. And at one point plus and 40 calories a piece, they are a perfect snack or appetizer.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut each jalapeno in half and remove the stem and seeds.
  3. Prepare the cornbread mix according to package directions. I used Jiffy mix which calls for 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk. Then stir in the cranberries and cheese if you are using it.
  4. Carefully lay out the jalapeno halves on a baking sheet and fill each pepper with the corn bread mix. Bake for about 15 minutes until cooked through.
  5. Variations: Add a can of creamed corn and 1/2 cup chopped green onions. Add 1 cup chopped Canadian bacon/ham and 1 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese. Add 1 cup fresh diced pineapple and 1/2 cup chopped turkey pepperoni.
