Chicken Stuffed Jalapenos

by Sheryl

This recipe for a Chicken Stuffed Jalapenos is fairly easy to prepare. It’s a great appetizer with a little kick because of the Jalapeno peppers that go along really well with the creamy chicken filling. This is the crowd favorite and with no-fail amaze my friends whenever they come over for brunch or dinner. It’s so flavorful, cheesy, and delicious! The chicken with cheddar and cream cheese that melts when bake is nothing but perfect. And the cumin powder gives that rustic feel and contrasting flavor against the gooeyness of the cheese. This recipe is worth keeping and sharing. And without a question became my friends and family’s most requested dish. Sometimes I prepare this ahead by filling the jalapenos with the chicken mixture and storing them in the fridge. Then, bake it the next day for a hearty brunch or lunch. Finally, you can sprinkle some paprika or chili powder onto it if you’d like (before baking).

Ingredients:

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoon salsa
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely shredded cooked chicken
12 medium jalapenos, halved and seeded
1 1/2 teaspoon paprika or chili powder, optional
