Sausage-Ricotta Jalapeno Poppers

Sausage-Ricotta Jalapeno Poppers


  • 10 jalapeno peppers
  • 4 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 4 ounces Italian sausage
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Spray oil

Cooking Directions

  1. Remove stems from the jalapeno peppers and remove innards through the top with a pepper corer. If you do not have a corer, use a knife or very thin spoon.
  2. Heat a frying pan to medium heat and cook sausage thoroughly, about 7-8 minutes. Break apart and transfer to a mixing bowl. Allow to cool.
  3. To mixing bowl, add ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, onion, chili powder and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Stuff each jalapeno pepper with the sausage-cheese mixture.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake poppers on a lightly oiled baking sheet about 20 minutes.
  6. Serve!
