10jalapenos red or green
¼tsp of bothpink salt or sea salt and pepperor more to taste
4largecloves of garlicgrated
1 ½cups Shredded Mozzarella or Italian style Cheese
Pre-heat oven to 400.
Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Wash, half, and de-seed jalapenos. I like to leave a few seeds for some heat. If you don't like a lot of heat you can remove all seeds.
Place cut and de-seeded peppers to the prepared cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil. You just want a drizzle for each pepper. It may be more or less than my measurements according to the size of your peppers.
Measure out the salt into your hand and sprinkle each pepper with salt. Do the same with the pepper and garlic powder.
Grate garlic into a pile on a cutting board and distribute evenly onto each pepper.
Fill each pepper with cheese. You may need more or less depending on the size of the peppers.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until peppers are done and cheese is slightly brown.
