A Twist on Jalapeño Poppers

Nothing takes the “casual” out of a spontaneous get-together like spending hours in the kitchen preparing food for your guests. Well, we have the perfect late-summer recipe for Jalapeño Poppers that take 20 minutes from prep to serve. And it includes Red Pepper Jelly – does it get much better than that?

Did you know the heat from a jalapeño comes from the veins surrounding the seeds? When you remove the seeds along with the veins, you’ll get a less spicy pepper. But oftentimes this is easier said than done. Here’s a tip for removing seeds in one easy step: Run a spoon between the skin and seeds. The seeds will come off with ease, and you’ll save yourself from those peppery-hot fingers that seem to last for hours.
