The Perfect Side Dish to your Mexican Food Night!


The other night was Mexican food night and instead of the sides we always have, I decided to mix it up a little and make these stuffed jalapeño peppers. I was worried that they would turn out too spicy to eat, but surprisingly, they were just the perfect amount of spicy. The cream cheese filling is very flavorful, too! They make a fun appetizer or side dish, especially for those who like spicy foods.
