Updated Aug 18, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 can (26 oz) pickled whole jalapeño chiles, drained, rinsed
  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey roasted peanuts, finely chopped

Steps

  • 1
    With small sharp knife, cut each chile in half, leaving stem on one of the halves. Scoop out seeds; rinse chiles. Drain, cut side down, on paper towel.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, place cream cheese in resealable freezer plastic bag; seal. Cut 1/2 inch off one corner of bag; set aside. In small bowl, mix peanut butter and brown sugar. Spoon mixture into another resealable freezer plastic bag; seal. Cut 1/2 inch off one corner of bag.
  • 3
    Squeeze bag containing cream cheese to fill each chile half with about 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese; repeat with peanut butter mixture. Dip surface of peanut butter into chopped peanuts. Arrange stuffed jalapeños on platter; serve at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Look for jalapeños that say “en escabeche” on the label. This means they are pickled in a liquid of vinegar, onions and carrots. Some brands may not include this on the label, so just check the ingredient list on the can.
  • tip 2
    Try these warm. Prepare as directed; place on broiler pan in between indents to prevent the stuffed jalapeños from rolling while baking. Bake at 350°F 10 minutes or until warm. Cool slightly before eating.
  • tip 3
    The small end of a small melon baller works wonderfully to remove the seeds and hollow out the inside of the chiles.
