Super Spicy Stuffed Jalapenos

OOOhhhh Weeee, these babies are good. This was my lunch…my spicy as hell, Guy Fieri inspired poppers.

I think when you “stuff” anything, it’s hard to go wrong.  Exibit A, stuffed jalapenos.

A few years back, I happened to come across Guy Fieri on a Superbowl cooking segment. There’s something about Guy that just stops me in my tracks every time I see him on TV. I’m guessing that he’s the closest thing  to a human teddy bear that I’ve ever seen. And he’s consistently sweet and nice, and those sunglasses on the back of his head crack me up.

And so there I was, watching Guy, expecting a recipe of fried cheese on a hogie with nachos on the side…but he SHOCKED me with a simple and (fairly) healthy recipe! He basically stuffed regular jalapenos with ground turkey and sour cream. Although it sounded a little odd, I trusted guy and embarked on my own stuffed jalapeno adventure.

All I can say is, In Guy I Trust, because they turned out AWESOME!

I added my own Lean touches to the recipe to make them just right, and I am proud to say that these Stuffed Jalapenos are spicy perfection. Heaven on a plate. So-sad-they’re-gone good. If you like spicy jalapeno nachos (not that you’ve ever eaten spicy jalapeno nachos or anything ;)), you’ll LOVE these.
