Jalapeño cheese squares
I posted this recipe in April, when very few people read my blog.
Like 4 or 5 people. Heh.
Since this is one of the easy, but well received appetizers I will be making for our Halloween Party I am re-posting it. These jalapeno cheese squares are easy to put together, make ahead friendly, and great for parties or football games or Thursdays. Thursdays need a little Wow! from time to time.
I got this recipe from my 2nd mother. You might think that would be my mother in law, but it’s not. I’ve been blessed with a mother, a step mother and a mother in law. I hit the mother trifecta. This recipe came from my (2nd mother), my step mother.
It’s super easy, cheesy, a tad spicy, and it’s even better when it’s been chilled over night.
2-3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped. OR ***see my short cut below***
1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp. baking powder
See, super easy.
What to do:
Put peppers in a well-greased baking pan (9″ would work perfectly). Cover them with the cheese.
Bake at 350 deg. for 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into 1 inch squares.
I chill them for 24 hours, but you could serve them as soon as they are cool enough to eat.
***Or my short cut is….diced, mild jalapeno peppers in a jar. I use about 1/3 of the bottle.***
She loves cheese. She also enjoys these cheese squares.
My cheese thief and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Tomorrow I will be re-posting my Texas Caviar recipe, it’s got jalapeno in it too. 😀
