How else will you know if a pin is a success or crap?
The Verdict: Crap… but possibly because I didn’t read the tips
I absolutely love jalapeno poppers and sausage and cheese… so this sounded AMAZING! I found it on Pinterest, and it was instantly repinned by a bunch of people.
It looks really easy, mix some sausage, cream cheese, cheddar, and onions together, put them in a jalapeno and bake. Well… it was mostly easy. Seeding the jalapeno was a pain in the butt. I tried using a paring knife and it took quite a while. Unfortunately after the fact, I went back and read the tips at the bottom of this post and she suggested using a lemon zester or a melon baller. Hmmm… that probably would have helped.
Normally when I eat jalapeno poppers i just pick it up and take a giant bite. For some reason I decided to cut a little piece and try it first. I’m so glad I did! My mouth was on fire! I eat hot food all the time… but this really got to me. There is no way I could have handled a giant bite. Honestly, the jalapeno was so spicy that I ended up just eating the sausage and cheese mixture out of several of them and not even touching the jalapenos. Again, reading the tips might have helped… the poster suggests putting the jalapenos in a bowl with running water to remove some of the heat. Guess that would have helped too!
So overall, I still believe these have potential… but mine were crap. I wish I would have read the tips through and I’ll probably make these again following those tips.
