I don’t know about you, but once the weather turns chilly, I really need something spicy to heat me up. And there’s nothing like some stuffed jalapenos to generate some heat.

Have you noticed how there’s a huge variation in the heat level of jalapenos sold at the grocery store? Whenever I use them finely minced in something and I really want them to add some serious heat, they end up having no more heat than a bell pepper.

But when I make these and I wouldn’t mind a jalapeno with a little less heat since I’m eating the entire thing at once, they end up being hotter than hell.

Solution- have lots of cold beer handy. Actually an extra spoonful of sour cream probably helps cut the heat more if your mouth is on fire.

These are so tasty. Can I subtitute jalapeno with bell pepper and use red bean instead black bean? Thank you for the recipe :)

Yes, I think that would be really good. You will probably want to increase the amount of filling since bell peppers are larger.

This is a perfect appetizer and I agree with you. If I’m eating the whole thing I don’t want my lips to melt off in front of company. :)

I love SPICY appetizers like this. My MIL always worries that my spicy eating habits will effect my breastmilk but if anything it will give Lucy a taste for spice too! (And she tolerates my milk just fine). Thank you for sharing such a delicious dish. I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!
