  • 3 cups leftover stuffing or a boxed stuffing can be used
  • 2 Italian sausages with casing removed I like to use the hot for a little more kick
  • 8 large jalapeños
  • 3 cups Monterey Jack cheese shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare cookie sheet by lining with foil to make clean-up easier.
  2. If you are not using leftover stuffing, prepare boxed stuffing according to package instructions.
  3. In a medium-sized skillet cook sausage thoroughly, chopping to break it up into pieces as it cooks.
  4. Drain and add to stuffing. Mix well.
  5. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds.
  6. Arrange on prepared baking sheet. Divide sausage stuffing between peppers then sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Cook 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and browned.  If it needs a little more browning you can place it under the broiler for 1-2 minutes.
  8. Serve immediately.
