A work in progress...

I saw these beauties at my favorite stand at the farmers market, and couldn't resist. I used some queso fresco, caramelized onions, and panko crumbs for the filling. It didn't wow me, but like I said, a work in progress!

Trying to keep it on the "healthy" tip, I used some organic yogurt as the sauce. Good, but needed improvement, so I spiced it up with some smoky chipotle adobo sauce. Much better the second time around. I think I'll play with the filling a little more next time. Loved the baked Jalapeno, I got the temp/timing just right in the oven (360 degrees for about 14 minutes). The texture was perfect, just al dente, but not mushy at all. Can't wait for round two! (and three, four, five?)

Gone to Maui...

Wow, it's been awhile. Hopefully when I get back from mini vacation I will have something new. Cheers!
