Bratwurst-Stuffed Jalapeño


  • 5 pork sausage bratwursts
  • ½ cup Cheddar cheese
  • 8-10 large jalapeño peppers
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • ¼ cup green onions
  • ¼ cup cilantro


  • To make the cilantro-lime dip, combine the sour cream, garlic cloves, lime juice, green onion, and cilantro in a food processor. Pulse until smooth, and set aside.
  • Remove the bratwurst from its casing and add it to a small bowl along with the Cheddar cheese.
  • Remove the stems and seeds from inside the jalapeños.
  • Stuff the bratwurst and cheese mixture inside each pepper.
  • In an oiled skillet over medium heat, cook each pepper for 8-10 minutes, until the exterior is lightly charred.
  • Remove and bake in the oven for an additional 10 minutes (or until the pork is cooked through).
  • Top with additional cilantro and serve with the cilantro-lime dip on the side.
