Stuffed Jalapenos and Stuffed Jalepeno Dip

Yesterday I posted about the basil pesto pasta dish that I made with produce from my in-laws’ garden. Thankfully, there’s still plenty of produce where that came from. Tonight, Sam and I used up the jalapeno peppers from his parents’ garden by making stuffed jalapenos and a stuffed jalapeno dip. Unfortunately, we didn’t measure for either recipe, mostly because I’m not a fan of jalapeno peppers. If you make these, you’ll have to do everything to taste (like we did). We had 4 jalapeno peppers on hand, so both recipes were small-scale.

That cheesy stuffed jalapeno at the front of the plate was for me. Sam really wants me to love jalapeno peppers as much as he does, so he made me a less spicy stuffed pepper. I still didn’t like it much.
