Heat up your next gathering with a bunch of these Chicken Quesadilla Stuffed Jalapeños. The peppers give the cheesy, creamy filling a nice kick.
There was a bit of variation in spiciness from one jalapeño to the next, which I didn’t expect. You can find a non-scientific tip for how to choose jalapeño peppers that are hotter or milder here.
20 medium fresh jalapeños
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1 cup Monterey jack and cheddar cheese blend, shredded
1⁄2 cup Rotel Tomatoes, drained
1⁄2 cup sour cream
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
1. Preheat oven to 400℉. Lightly grease baking sheets.
2. Cut jalapeños in half lengthwise. Remove and discard seeds and membranes. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, combine chicken and remaining ingredients.
4. Spoon chicken mixture evenly into jalapeños. Place on baking sheets.
5. Bake 20 minutes.

Ohio-based Embleton have a new album out titled ‘It Did Me Well’. It’s a lovely collection of alt-country tunes with hints at stories you wish you could know a lot more about.
“She’s Not There” is one of the saddest songs I have heard in a long time.
“Driving you home for the first time to meet mom and dad
I’m so glad that you came
You ask me how long until we arrive, 10 or 12 minutes
almost in sight
We talked about the weather all the way
And you fumbled with your nails because you’re nervous
I’m nervous too, so I turn to look at you
You’re not there
She’s not there
She never was
I know in my heart it’s the truth
I know in my heart there’s no use”
(Unfortunately, the embed function is not working for the song so you will have to go here to listen to it.)
