Rick’s Rockin Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos

Number of Servings: 10 (65g)
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Not only are hot peppers an excellent source of vitamin C, but they also contain capsaicin, the antioxidant that gives peppers their heat and may have anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting properties


  • 15 jalapeños (sweet mini peppers may be substituted for a mild version)
  • 1 (12 Oz.) package Italian style chicken sausage
  • 1/2 cup Sharp Light Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 3 Tbsp. Artichoke and Kalamata Hommus
  • 1/2 ripe Avocado, cut into 15 pieces (optional)


1. Wash peppers. Split lengthwise and remove seeds.

2. Remove 3 links of sausage (save the remaining 3 for another use).

3. Crumble sausage (which is precooked) and mix with sharp light cheddar. If a crisper sausage filling is desired the sausage may be sauteed first before mixing with cheese.

4. Stir in hummus.

5. Stuff peppers.

6. Grill indirectly over medium low heat until peppers are starting to soften and stuffing is hot and starting to crisp. Alternatively, the peppers can be baked uncovered in a 425˚F oven for 10-15 minutes.

7. Garnish with a small slice of avocado if desired.
