I love a good, cheesy recipe. Let’s be honest, cheese just makes everything better! I personally believe that whenever a recipe is missing a little “zing” to simply add parmesan and I always achieve the taste I’m looking for.

I’ve partnered with Armstrong® cheese for this recipe for Chili Stuffed Peppers. My family has been buying Armstrong® cheese for a few years, I love that they started in a “local” community (local being it’s only a few hours away from where I live) and that it’s a BC based company. Armstrong® Cheese is made like how cheese artisans made it many years ago. It’s naturally aged and has been since 1902.

Armstrong® cheese has put a new, exciting twist on former cheese favorites. They have now released:

  • Monterey Jack with Jalapeno
  • Garlic and Herb
  • Havarti

I made a recipe for chili stuffed peppers that’s topped with the Monterey jack jalapeno and, you guys, it tastes so darn good. It’s not spicy, so don’t be scared off with the “j word”, it has just enough heat where it adds flavour. It would go really well as a snack on the patio this summer while sipping some Gewurztraminer.

I also bought the Garlic and Herb white cheddar because I thought it would go amazing with a french onion soup recipe, however, my family got to the cheese before I did and there isn’t enough left.

Naturally, I lost my cheese grater (how does it always happen when I need it?) so I sliced up the cheese and used my Vitamix to grate it instead. After that, I tossed the peppers in the oven and dealt with my hungry tummy by nibbling on a little (okay, a lot) of the Monterey jack jalapeno cheese.

TBK’s Pro Tip: Can’t find a cheese grater? Use a blender instead and chop it a few times.

You guys, my house smelled so good.
