Cooking With Cave Man

Gameday Stuffed Jalapenos

Recipe by
50 mins


  • 1 lb. sausage
  • 1 lb. fresh jalapenos, stems and seeds removed (see picture)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • ½ white onion, sliced to sauté
  • 8 white mushrooms, sliced to sauté
  • Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese (to top) we use ½ a bag!
  • EVOO


  1. Preheat the Oven to 350⁰F.
  2. Slice your jalapenos in half (long ways) and remove the stems and seeds by pulling them out.
  3. **Caveman Tip:  Leaving the seeds and stems in will make your appetizer a lot hotter!  Also – be careful what you touch after doing this task!!  Jalapeno heat on your hands does not go away easily! You may want to wear gloves.

  4. In a separate bowl – use your hands to blend the sausage, cream cheese, onions and mushroom mixture together.

Combine and Cook

On a baking sheet, lay sliced jalapenos, open side up and stuff generously with the cream cheese mixture.  Let the jalapenos cook for 15-20 minutes until everything is nice and hot, you should notice the jalapenos starting to brown a little.  Open the oven and sprinkle the jalapenos generously with the Monterey Jack cheese, I let it fall all over the sides. Close the oven and continue to bake for an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted and brown.

Enjoy your appetizer! Your friends sure will.
