Jalapeno Pork Poppers
- 1 pound medium jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise, seeded, and deveined
- 1 pound cream cheese, softened
- 1 pound ground sausage
- 1 medium white onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- pepper to taste
Preheat oven 400 degrees F.
Brown sausage and onion over medium-high heat. Drain fat. Pat sausage with paper towel to remove residual fat. In a metal bowl, combine sausage/onion mixture, cream cheese, salt and pepper. Stir until completely combined. With a small spoon, fill jalapeno halves with sausage/cream cheese mixture. Place filled jalapeno halves on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and jalepenos appear to be slightly softened. This will take approximately 25-35 minutes. Eat immediately or store leftovers in refrigerator and warm up in microwave.
