We love to get fresh jalapenos from the local farmers market whenever possible. They seem to have more of a unique flavor and spicy kick than the store bought ones.

Tips and tricks:

  • Wear gloves whenever you are handling jalapeños and don’t rub your face or eyes.
  • To trap the heat in before serving, cover the tray with aluminum foil.
  • Add garlic cloves to the mashed potato mixture before boiling to infuse it with a garlic flavor.
  • Try smoking these jalapenos on the Traeger for a smoky flavor.
  • They may also be placed in the air fryer to speed up the cooking time.
  • Next time add chili pepper or black pepper for a nice kick to the filling.
