Refried Bean and Cheddar Stuffed Jalapenos

Well folks, I don't see my love affair with stuffed peppers waning any time soon. It's just turning into something I really enjoy, they're great munchies and I do have quite a few ideas for them. How about a burrito minus the tortilla calories, Refried Bean and Cheddar Stuffed Jalapenos.
These peppers will only be as good as your refried beans so make sure you pack some flavor into them. The easiest thing to do is add at least 1 Tblsp of taco seasoning to homemade or a can of beans, taste them and add more if desired... oh yes, I desired:@)

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)
  1. Mix the beans and taco seasoning. 
  2. Stuff the peppers.
  3. Top with cheddar.
  4. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes, until peppers soften up a bit and the cheese has melted.
  5. Sprinkle lightly with kosher or sea salt while still warm.
Have a happy day:@)

  3. I love how you have been using jalapeno's. I love refried beans. I bet a little squirt of lime would go nicely too. You've really got me thinking of all the yummy things you can stuff in a pepper.

  4. What if you just smear the beans in with a fork? Those look yummy.
