Stuffed Jalapenos

These fiery bites are loaded with intense flavor. The stuffing also works equally well in mushrooms, if you prefer your nibbles on the milder side.

12 fresh jalapenos, halved and seeded
1 pound bulk Italian sausage
1 small onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup shredded Estero Gold cheese
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

      1. Place the jalapenos on a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.
      2. Combine the sausage, onion, bell pepper and garlic in a pan set over medium-high heat. Cook until the sausage browns, adjusting the heat as needed to prevent burning.
      3. Remove the mixture from the heat and add the cheese. Mix well.
      4. Stuff the jalapenos with the sausage mixture.
      5. Broil until heated through.
