Cheesy Baked Jalapenos Inspired by Martha Stewart
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12 jalapeno halves
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup grated sharp cheddar
  • 6 large jalapenos, halved and seeded
  • Salt and ground pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese and cheddar. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. With a spoon, fill each jalapeno half with cheese mixture. Place peppers on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until cheese is browned and bubbling, about 10 minutes.
  3. Martha Stewart’s original recipe calls for rotating the pan about half way through cooking time. I did not do that, they came out great.
  4. *You can refrigerate these for a day and reheat. Place on foil, bake at 450 degrees until heated through, about 10 minutes.

Hope you’re having a great summer:)
