Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 4 25°F.

  • Arrange jalapeños, cut side down, on a baking sheet. Roast for about 5 minutes, until tender. Let cool about 5 minutes, until warm to the touch.

  • Meanwhile, mix cheese and garlic in a medium bowl with your hands, making sure the garlic is evenly incorporated. Mix together pine nuts and thyme in another small bowl.

  • Press a generous amount of cheese mixture into 1 jalapeño half, until just overflowing. Press cheese side of pepper in pine nut mixture until well coated, then place on a baking sheet, cheese side up. Repeat with remaining jalapeños.

  • Bake until cheese begins to melt and pine nuts turn golden, about 5 minutes. Turn oven to broil, and cook until pine nuts are slightly golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes more.
