Jalapeño peppers are famous for being very hot. Even pickled jalapeños tend to be too picante for me. I enjoy the flavor they give to a cooked dish, even though I really can’t eat them. But luckily, this isn’t always the case with fresh jalapeño peppers. This recipe of jalapeños stuffed with chorizo and cheese is one of my favorite ways to consume jalapeño peppers. After removing the seeds and washing well with cold water, these peppers are full of flavor and edible by those with even the most sensitive palates. Believe me, you won’t be able to just eat one!
