Sausage Jalapeño Pepper Poppers


 I know everyone is looking for a great appetizer to serve now that's it almost Football Season!! 
I bet you would like something a little different but not too out there, so how about taking a tailgating favorite and adding some extra punch!

Sausage Jalapeño Pepper Poppers
(yeah baby!)

1 lb of mild or hot ground Italian sausage
2 packages of  (8oz) cream cheese 
1 lb of bacon, slices cut in half
30-35 fresh jalapeños (depending on the size)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a large skillet cook and crumble sausage over medium high heat until brown and no longer pink. Remove skillet from heat and drain off the excess fat.  Add both packages of cream cheese while the sausage is still hot, mix well and set aside.  
Precook bacon according to your microwave directions until half-cooked and slightly pliable, set aside to cool.  
(I placed about 4 bacon strips at a time on a plate covered with a paper towel and cooked them for 3 minutes turning half way through the cooking time)
Slice each jalapeño lengthwise and remove the seeds and membrane.  The jalapeños will be similar to little boats awaiting all that gooey goodness.  Fill the jalapeño boats with the  sausage/cheese mixture, wrap a bacon slice around each jalapeño and secure with toothpicks. Place in a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.  
Serve


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you and your guests/friends enjoy these Sausage Jalapeño Pepper Poppers!

And since I love football and football snacking, here are a few other recipes to try for your parties!

Green Chile Stew


One thing that I miss about New Mexico is the abundance of fresh green chiles!  
I absolutely love the smell of roasting chile and most of the New Mexico air is just alive with the aroma during harvest season!! 
When this happens, I know it's time for a great pot of Green Chile Stew!  
Served with a few tortillas on the side, perfection!!

Green Chile Stew  

3 lbs of Pork shoulder cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
6-7 Anaheim green chiles, roasted and chopped into 1/2 pieces or 1(14oz) can of chopped green chiles
1 large purple onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Mexican oregano
1 tablespoon cumin
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 cups chicken broth
1 (10oz) can green enchilada sauce
Salt and Pepper

Season pork cubes with salt and pepper and brown in a large dutch oven with the olive oil over medium high heat until brown.  (This needs to be done in batches) Remove the pork cubes and allow to drain on paper towels.  Add chopped onions in the dutch oven and cook until soft and translucent about 5-6 minutes.  Add green chiles, garlic, cumin, oregano and continue to cook for 1minute.  Add vinegar and stir to deglaze the pan and pour in the enchilada sauce and chicken broth, heat.  
Place pork cubes in a slow cooker, pour the sauce from the dutch oven over the pork and cook for 3-4 hours on low.   Pork will be tender and sauce will be thickened. 
 Serve with heated tortillas on the side.
