Chipotle Turkey Stuffed Habanero Peppers

These Chipotle Turkey Stuffed Habanero Peppers are a spicy little appetizer, guaranteed to get your pulse raising and your sweat beading! But don’t be alarmed, with a side of avocado cream to calm the spiciness, you are sure to enjoy these little morsels.


I’ve got a lotta heat for y’all today in the form of these little Chipotle Turkey Stuffed Habanero Peppers.


Habenero peppers pack a heck of a spicy punch! And, when making these little, stuffed ones, I tried my best to take out all the little habanero seeds responsible for that spicy punch. However, my daughter blurted out (between gulps of water and bites of avocado), when I asked her to taste test these, that I might not have done as good a job of that as I thought I had done. So, I made sure to top these Chipotle Turkey Stuffed Habanero Peppers with a large dollop of avocado cream! Now, you could also use a dollop of sour cream if avocado isn’t your thing.

I also stuffed these bad boys with some cheddar cheese before filling them up with a mix of turkey, onions, garlic and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. For serving, I just drizzled on some sriracha sauce – guess I’m a glutton for some throat searing spice-ness!
