Normally, when I make jalapeno poppers I make something luscious that includes bacon and cream cheese. In fact, the next time I make some, I will take photos and post the recipe. This week however, I was stuck with a bunch of extra cooked ground beef that we would have had for dinner Thursday if we hadn't gotten a better offer with friends.
If you haven't ever worked with fresh jalapeno peppers, the most important rule is, always wear gloves. These things are torture and part of the reason half the time during football season, I resort to the premade freezer version, not nearly as good. Last week I was talking with one of my husband's hunting buddies and he mentioned this amazing group of products.. I quickly ran to Amazon, found them, and ordered them. (You can find the links to the products I used below). These simple tools made my life so much easier. You see, jalapenos emit an oil that gets on your skin and burns. I am pretty allergic to it, in fact, I have a hard time just breathing when I am working with these little suckers.
The second item I ordered was this little popper stuffer. It wasn't necessary but it was amazing. I was able to push that cheese concoction all the way down without being covered in cream cheese goo.
If you buy these from me I get my husband off my back for shopping so much at Amazon because I can tell him I got credit from you lovely people. Not enough because I shop way too much but that really isn't the point, now is it?
