Ever had a jalapeno popper? TFC loves them. The spicy jalapeno, filled with cream cheese and spices, sometimes wrapped in bacon and baked, other times breaded and fried...
I saw this recipe when looking at the winners of a chili competition over at Prevention RD, made by Books and Cooks. I can see why this was not only A winner, but THE winner. It was a HUGE hit in my house. It was a touch too spicy for ME and the little dude, but the husband managed to scarf quite a bit of it before I hurried to put leftovers in the fridge. And with the calories not being ridiculous, I can serve a decadent tasting dish without sacrificing flavour at ALL.
There's a bit of slicing and dicing prep to be done, but once that is done - it's mostly hands off, and done within 30 minutes. And we all know that I love that.
I did leave out the corn, and added an extra can of cannellini beans for two reasons:
- The husband hates corn
- We didn't have any anyway
The flavours intensified and were (I hear) amazing the next day - this is a great make ahead dish! The husband raved about this - said I needed to make it in bulk, and freeze it so he could have a bowl "every single week".
