I really like traditional jalapeño poppers stuffed with cheddar or cream cheese but it is nice to have a change and include other flavors to make a traditional football recipe more interesting and offer something new to your guests.

I always look for small sweet potatoes to easily clean and chop. For this recipe I am also using jalapeños from my Mexican vegetable garden that still is producing peppers and eggplants despite the winter.

I don’t have jalapenos nearly enough. These would make an excellent addition to a Super Bowl party!
