Sausage Stuffed Jalapeños


 When my husband mentioned last year that he wanted to throw a Super Bowl party, I was thrilled, not because I’m an avid football fan (I really just watch for the commercials), but because I couldn’t wait to plan the menu.  I took a little gamble on these because I had never made them before but there were definitely a hit.  They are hot (but could be mellowed a bit by using a banana pepper or something else along that same level of spiciness).  No one seemed to mind, however, even as tears streamed down their cheeks.
