Ingredients:

15 jalapeños, cut in 1/2, seeded and deveined

1/2 cup candied jalapeños, chopped

2 lbs. mild Italian sausage

1/4 cup red onion, minced

1/2 cup red bell pepper, minced

3 tablespoons  garlic, minced

2 cups cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated  plus more for garnish

salt and pepper

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° and set rack in the middle of the oven.

Place jalapenos on a sheet tray and roast for 10 minutes. Removed from the oven and let cool. Turn broiler on medium.

In a medium pan add the sausage and cook for 5-7 minutes, breaking up as cooking. Add the onions, red bell and candied jalapeños and garlic and cook to soften for about 5 minutes. Remove and place in a large bowl. Cool to room temperature, then add cream cheese and Parmesan. Mix ingredients thoroughly and season with salt and pepper.  Place approximately 1 tablespoonful of mixture into each jalapeño half, and top with 1/2 teaspoon of mozzarella cheese. Place the sheet tray of stuffed peppers in the oven and broil until mozzarella cheese melts.  

Our sweet jalapenos and Italian sausage add a nice spicy flavor burst to this tasty appetizer.  I have even been know to forget the whole jalapenos and just make up a crock pot dip out of this recipe.  Either way it is yummy!
