    I don't usually cook with peppers because I don't like them--and they don't like me. But when it comes to jalapeños, i absolutely love them! I am heading back to my Texas roots for this one. Bill and I used to go to a little bar in Texarkana, where we drank beer and I ate these or their seafood-stuffed peppers. These were my favorites.

    Taco-stuffed Jalapeños

    12 to 15 fresh jalapeños
    1 pound of lean ground beef
    1 package of taco seasoning
    2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
    2 cups of tortilla chips, crushed
    Salsa and sour cream for condiments

    1. Slice and scrape seeds and membrane that hold the seeds.
    2. Prepare the taco meat according to the directions on the packet and let cool slightly.
    3. Add 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese to the meat mixture.
    4. Stuff pepper halves with meat/cheese mixture.
    5. Sprinkle peppers with crushed tortilla chips.
    6. Cover peppers with remaining cheese.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until peppers are soft and cheese is fully melted and gooey.
    Let them cool slightly before eating and serve with salsa and sour cream.

    I've been MIA for a few, but I love peppers!

    September Recipe Challenge Is In the House!!!-picypds0p-jpg

    Mild Jamaican Jerk Wings

    These come out tender and juicy and so full of flavor! I get the aji dulce peppers in a Latin market. They are very small and thin skinned. I like the flavor because it is not as hot as even a jalapeno, but it is not sweet like a bell pepper. For this recipe, I used green aji dulce peppers, but I have seen them yellow to red in color. They really look like habanero. The original recipe did call for habanero, but I find them too hot. If you want regular, ordinary, run-of-the-mill Jerk wings use 1 to 3 habaneros by all means.
    Ingredients

      • 1 bunch green onion, rough chopped
      • 4 garlic cloves
      • 2-inch piece peeled fresh ginger, rough chop or 1 teaspoon ground ginger
      • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leave
      • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
      • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      • 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
      • 3-6 mild aji dulce peppers (they look like habanero but they are not hot), stems and seeds removed or 1 -3 jalapeno chile peppers
      • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
      • 1/4 cup soy sauce
      • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
      • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
      • 3 lbs chicken wing pieces (cut wings at the joints and discard or reserve for another use the tips)


    Directions

    1. Place all ingredients except oil and chicken in a blender or food processor and puree. With the processor running, slowly add a thin stream of oil until the mixture becomes thicker.
    2. Place chicken into the marinade and marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
    3. Prepare the grill.
    4. Remove chicken from marinade and grill over direct heat just to brown. Watch closely as the sugar from the marinade will burn quickly. Move for indirect heat and cook until cooked through. Brush with additional marinade, if desired, during cooking.
    5. These can also be cooked on the stovetop (which is how I did it). I browned them over high heat in a lightly greased cast iron skillet. I slit one open and found it not quite done, so I put them in the microwave for 2 minutes.
    We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books, But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
