Here's a great tip, use a disposable icing bag to fill the peppers.
Works for whether the peppers have been cut in half, just the top taken off or the side split for filling.
Another tip: Already grilling out? Why not throw the appy on the grill too... just place the peppers on a few sheets of tin foil (at least 3) and make a disposable tray. These were baked on the covered grill.
Adds a little smoky flavor too!
Refried Bean and Cheddar Stuffed Jalapenos
Approx 10-12 (3"-ish) jalapenos, halved, seeded and deviened
1 can refried beans (or a little less than 2 C homemade)
1 to 2 Tblsp taco seasoning
Shredded Cheddar for topping (I just buy a 2 cup bag and use what I need)
- Mix the beans and taco seasoning.
- Stuff the peppers.
- Top with cheddar.
- Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes, until peppers soften up a bit and the cheese has melted.
- Sprinkle lightly with kosher or sea salt while still warm.
Have a happy day:@)
