Chorizo Stuffed Jalapeños

All of those years living in Manhattan haven't taken the Texas out of Lisa Fain. For her new cookbook, The Homesick Texan Cookbook, she's taken the classic recipes that she grew up with and tweaked them ever so slightly to reflect her more cosmopolitan digs.

Take these Chorizo Stuffed Jalapeños. They're clearly a take on those beloved cheese-stuffed, breaded and fried poppers, but instead of going for cheddar or plain old cream cheese, Fain fills hers with a grown up mix of kicked up goat cheese mixed with spicy crumbles of chorizo.

Baked under the broiler until the cheese is all gooey and the peppers hot and sizzly, these guys have the same spicy, ooziness that makes jalapeño poppers so amazing while some how having an air of class and even more Texas flavor.

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of The Homesick Texan Cookbook to give away this week.
