Baked Cheese Jalapeno

Prep Time - 5 min
Bake Time - 20 min

You'll need ** (Refer note 4)
Slice Cheese
Mozarella Cheese
Chopped Onions
Thyme or pepper powder
a pinch of salt
Béchamel or White Sauce (or tomato sauce)
Melted Butter

How to make them 
1. Cut the top of the peppers out. Slice them throughout the middle and remove all the seeds inside (this reduces the spiciness)
2. On one half, apply white sauce (or any other light spread) generously and sprinkle with some  thyme or pepper powder.
3. Stuff the pepper half with onions.
4. Tear away some pieces of the slice cheese and tuck into the half pepper. Also grate some mozzarella if you wish.
5. Arrange the prepared jalapenos on a buttered baking dish.
6. Drizzle some melted butter all over the peppers
7. Bake at 200C for 20 minutes or until the cheese melts & looks golden brown!

1. This is just my way of making baked jalapenos. You can stuff them with anything that potentially reduces the chilli peppers' spice. For example, mushrooms, tomatoes, cucumbers etc! But I'd suggest you also stuff it with cheese. Any kind. Ricotta, Mozzarella, Cottage, Mascarpone, Cream cheese or anything!
2. I had some left over white sauce & I used it. Which probed to be an amazing addition to the dish. You could also use Mayonnaise instead. But if neither of these are available, then use tomato ketchup.
3. Once baked, the chili peppers were hardly spicy. Just make sure you get all the seeds out coz the real spice of the chillies lies in those seeds!
4. I haven't written down exact measurements because it depends on how many you are making. Just exercise common sense!
