There seem to be so many inspiring quotes on how we should compete with ourselves and not each other, but, My daughter and I can get pretty competitive at times when food is involved.
Sometimes, when we get our favorite frozen yogurt/ice cream, we try to see who can make theirs last the longest.
In the not-so-long-ago-past, when I made some Chipotle Turkey Stuffed Habanero Peppers, my daughter and I tried to see which one of us could hold out the longest without gulping down a tall glass of cold milk followed by an ice water chaser – in her case, there was a spoon-of-ice-cream chaser too! Of course, when I won, she tried to change the rules on me to see who could eat the most – well, she should know better than to out-eat my spice-love!
From stuffed Habaneros to stuffed jalapenos, stuffed peppers are quickly becoming a favorite appetizer/snack in our house – an intriguing and spicy vehicle for tuna, turkey and now a hummus-like, bean and walnut dip-like-stuffing.
How did these come about you ask? Weeeeellllll, I intended to make a dip with just beans, Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce and lime and olive oil, but, seeing I had a stash of California Walnuts left after making several versions of a Walnut Coconut Cookie Cake, I figured I’d add some roughly chopped walnuts to the mix because walnuts and beans pair so well together – at least IMO. Jam-packed with 4 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, phosphorous, magnesium, and 2.5 grams of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (Omega-3), each ounce of walnuts are a nutritional treasure trove!
My competitive daughter came by as I was making the dip and seeing some jalapenos on the kitchen counter, suggested a competition to see who could eat the most bean-walnut stuffed jalapenos ~ and seeing I’m not one to shy away from any sort of food-related competition, I was like game on, oh daughter-of-mine!
I quickly spooned this dip into the jalapenos and stuck these Chipotle Flavored Walnut & Bean Stuffed Jalapenos into the oven for 15 minutes and then it was game time!
