Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Boats

Ring in the New Year with some spice added to your buffet! The main ideas in this recipe come from a Canadian Living magazine. These little boats can be prepared ahead and refrigerated, to put in the oven later. Half a recipe works well for a small group appetizer.


  • 10 - 12 large fresh jalapeno peppers
  • 150 g boursin cheese ( I used cranberry, pepper)
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • good dash of pepper
  • 4 Tbsp bread crumbs mixed with 4 Tbsp additional shredded cheese
  1. Cut peppers in half, lengthwise, right down the center of the stem so that each piece has a stem. Scrape out the seeds.
  2. Mix cheeses, lemon juice and pepper and spoon into boats, using a tiny spoon.
  3. Top with crumb and cheese mix and arrange on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 375 F for about 30 minutes.

  2. These look really good and so great for New Year's Eve! I like making "half" recipes and should have done so with my baking this year - too many leftovers to tempt me :).

  3. We have discovered these at family gatherings, and they are so popular. Never any left over .

    Happy New Year 2016 to you and yours !
