This is a wonderful baked appetizer blending the tastes of Cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers. The amount of jalapenos used can easily be adjusted to personal taste, although baking does take a lot of the burn out of the peppers. I've made this several times and I never have leftovers. My husband wishes I would make these for him every day. I don't recommend doubling the recipe; make multiple batches instead.

Didn't use food processor; just stirred 16 oz shredded cheddar with other ingredients, PLUS, ADDED ~1/3 CUP FLOUR. Unusual appetizer, looks good, was popular. Tastes best warm. Read More
