Playing with Peppers!!!

Playing With Peppers…

With all the pepper pictures decided to do some playing.

Yesterday, I cooked these in foil. Too much cheese stuck to the foil. Decided to line the foil with parchment paper. That did the trick.


Got a good sized (5 to 7 inch) pepper and mixed up some Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, Cream and so it would be neatly I put in some chicken.

One for me and one for Mrs. ~ tried to talk her out of hers but that was quick no.

Plate setter 300° and 1 ½ hours later. Stuffed Pepper nirvana!!!

Time to do some more playing with the cheeses. The chicken didn’t do anything for the flavor. I am thinking of adding some pickled Jalapeno’s and maybe a very few banana peppers. No spices as of yet.

Hope you all have a great day.

    Kent try layering some jimmy dean first, then the cheese. Maybe even put some bacon on top. yummy

  • Sounds like a great idea.

    I am kind of heading to chili relleno, but I am not sure if the egg batter would hold around the cheese. I have no idea for a chili relleno sauce, I don't want to have just a plain tomato type sauce.

    Gramps they really look good
  • LC has a huge more chance of getting a good tasting result than I do!!! I have a hard time making oreo's and milk taste good.

  • Mike,

    Up here out pepper selection, where I shop, is handicapped to say the least. Combine that with my knowledge and I am lucky if I can even get to a ‘duno’ answer.

    They were in with and priced as Anaheim’s. However, they look bigger than Anaheim’s and taste more ‘pepperish’, ah, more towards jalapeno’s. The outer skin is more of a jalapeno look but smaller in diameter and length. Jalapeno’s seem much hotter and a stronger pepper taste.

    My wife picked them for me. I told her to get the biggest and longest peppers she could find. Cooked these taste a lot like the canned ‘green chili’s we get up here. The can somewhat looks like a small version of canned tuna.

    Put bacon around these and they would make HUGE ABT’s – 4 or 5 times bigger. I didn’t measure these but the longest could be 7 or 8 inches. The completed cooked stuffed pepper has fantastic taste and flavor. The ones I just did, there probably is more heat from the pepper jack cheese than from the pepper itself. I really didn’t expect them to come out as good as they did.

    I have about 6 more, then I am going to make another batch and get just a little more heat in them.

  • looks fantastic!!!! Of course I have a thing for peppers!
