What do you do when you find your 13 year old has pinned recipes on Pinterest? You make it! Poor Sophie always feels left out in the treat department since discovering her CSID (sugar intolerance). I'm so proud of her for hunting recipes she can enjoy. This is something she will have to deal with the rest of her life and this shows me she's turning into a food responsible young lady :)
If you're looking for a crunchy, cheesy, sorta spicy snack, this will hit the spot! Everyone at my table loved them. Enjoy :)
JALAPENO CHEESE CRISPS (makes about 12)
1 cup shredded cheese ( I used colby jack, but use your favorite!)
1 jalapeno, sliced and seeded
Skillet method (I used electric skillet):
Heat skillet (electric skillet was set on 300-325 degrees). Place a 1 TBSP pile of cheese on skillet and top with a slice of jalapeno. Cook until the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. If the cheese is ready you will be able to flip with a spatula. If the cheese is to soft to flip, it isn't ready and let it cook another 30 seconds and try again. Once flipped, cook until it's brown around the edges. Let drain on a paper towel. They will get crunchy while they're cooling.
The original recipe I adapted this from can be viewed here.
I'm a previous stay-at-home mom of 8 years who joined the working world again as the Food Service Director over our local school district and a high school lunch lady. I have 3 kiddies. Makayla (Miss Picky Pants) is 14, Sophie (Worm) is 13 and Chase's 9. I LOVE to cook! If you're looking for plain ol' mom food... you're in the right place! I'm always looking to cook up new recipes and simple, inexpensive meals. My goal's to share old favorites and to make new ones. Thanks to everyone who stops by and visits my blog! You inspire me to keep posting (even when I have a difficult time managing my time!)
