  • 1
    Heat the oil in a medium nonstick pan.
  • 2
    Add the shrimp; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook the shrimp on both sides until cooked, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool. Chop each shrimp into small pieces.
  • 3
    Add the onion, garlic, and chorizo to the same pan. Cook, breaking up the chorizo into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until it is no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan, drain, and let cool.
  • 4
    Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • 5
    In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese and the Monterey Jack. Add the shrimp and chorizo; mix until fully blended.
  • 6
    Stuff the jalapeños with the shrimp and chorizo mixture. Sprinkle more Monterey Jack cheese on top, if you like.
  • 7
    Bake for 10–15 minutes, or until the cheese begins to brown.
  • When cutting fresh jalapeños, wear plastic gloves and wash hands thoroughly afterwards.

More About This Recipe
  • These shrimp and chorizo stuffed jalapeños are really delicious! I'm fairly sensitive to spicy food and generally avoid chili peppers. However, when I made these jalapeños for my husband, their smell was so delicious that I couldn't help but taste them. I guarantee that the amount of heat is just perfect, and the combination of flavors makes these jalapeños unique. I dare you to try them... you'll love them!
