Chipotle Flavored Walnut & Bean Stuffed Jalapenos

“By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the California Walnut Commission and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time, however, I received free samples of California walnuts mentioned in this post.”

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!

Food competitions are so interesting! Especially between families... Lol. Shashi, I can just imagine you and your daughter, both sweating bullets, trying to outdo each other. Shots of ice cream and all. Hahaha. "Of course, when I won:" Lololol. My friend, you had me laughing throughout this post! What was your daughter thinking, trying to out-spice you! Puh-lease! ;) I love that you created stuffed jalapenos that are packed full of protein-rich awesomeness. :) I'm really feeling (and I must admit, drooling) over the combo of beans, chipotle and walnuts. What a delicious combo.

...but you left us hanging, Shashi! Who wont the walnut-stuffed jalapeno eating contest?? (I have a fiver on you, although I bet lil Shashi made it a close competition!) And what a fun filling idea! I've never thought about using walnut as a filling to stuffed jalapenos, but it sounds delicious! :-)
