Pitzotl Stuffed Jalapenos: Spice Up Your Appetizers

I've gotta admit it. I love a great stuffed pepper. But, I have a particular affection for the bite-sized variety.

Jalapeno poppers are a great example. Creamy. Cheesy. Delicious. Right?  But, they're puttery to make, since they need to be battered and fried.  So, how about a slightly easier version?

These peppers are stuffed with a cream cheese and Monterey Jack cheese mixture that matches (or beats) that of the usual jalapeno poppers. It's made even more delicious with the addition of a bit of finely diced Bolzano Pitzotl, an artisan salami made from heirloom pork flavored with chiles and cocoa powder.

Just slice open the jalapenos, scrape out the seeds, stuff with the cheese mixture, and bake.

They're absolutely delicious -- reminiscent of a cross between jalapeno poppers and pepperoni pizza -- and perfect for your next party.  I'm thinking they'd even be delicious made on the grill in the summertime.

Oh, yeah.

  1. I love all the Bolzano salami and can't wait to try the new one! I'd love to try it thinly sliced on a homemade pizza, in place of pepperoni, along with jalapenos, red onion, and fresh tomato.

  2. I would love to try Pamploma Runner and I would use it in a pasta.

  3. I love Bolzano's Pig Red Salami! It is incredible when it is highlighted in a simple Salami Provolone Panini!

  4. i'd like to try the old school variety with crackers and cheese

  5. Old School, Hook's 15 year cheddar, and Potter's Crackers!

  6. I would like to try Pamploma Runner with some crackers!

  7. RauchZwiebel I would probably have it with crackers and beer from the local brewery.

  8. Pamploma would be my choice.

  9. I've got a nice Tempranillo wine cellared and waiting to be enjoyed with some Pamploma Runner. I'd add some creamy Port Salut cheese, a few garlic-stuffed olives, some buttery toastettes, and call it a great night!

  10. Pitzotl, because its the only one I haven't tried. So far my favorite is RauchZwiebel, followed by Big Red.

  11. pig red sounds luscious
