Not your average stuffed jalapeno popper. Couldn't find a recipe that I liked so made these loaded with everything I like! Hope you like them just as much as I do. Serve with sour cream and guacamole.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large bowl with ice and cold water and set aside. Slice a thin piece from the bottom of each pepper to stop peppers from rolling onto their sides when baking.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Drop each pepper carefully into the water and boil 2 minutes. Remove peppers from water and place in the bowl of ice water.

  • Cook turkey sausage in a skillet over medium heat until browned, about 3 minutes. Drain excess fat. Stir in Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, ranch-flavored seasoning, and garlic.

  • Remove peppers from water and drain. Fill each pepper with sausage mixture, forming a mound. Place filled peppers on a baking sheet; place in the freezer until just frozen, about 20 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Mix bread crumbs with butter. Press into the top of the sausage filling.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bread crumbs are golden brown and cheese starts to bubble, 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If desired, you may freeze until ready to bake. These are a great finger food to make ahead of time.

This recipe might leave you with leftover filling. Save to use when you make more jalapeno poppers, or also use as a dip.

These were very good! I did some hollowing out the jalapeno and some halving them. They were both fine. I only used 2 tablespoons of the ranch seasoning and that was plenty salty for us so make sure you taste it before adding the whole packet. Really enjoyed the panko on top (I used seasoned). Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
