Stuffed Jalapeños with mozzarella, ricotta and parmigiana. Are you drooling yet? Me too! These are my mom’s very accidental creation as she randomly decided to stuff jalapeños when she had extra ricotta mixture from the eggplant rolls she was making years ago. They were absolutely the most delicious jalapeños I have ever had and I knew I couldn’t keep them a secret for much longer. If you are a lover of jalapeños, you will go to heaven and back with this recipe.

  • 14 Jalapeños, seeded
  • 3/4-1 cup ricotta
  • 1 egg, or leave it out
  • salt to taste
  • ½ cup grated parmigiano
  • 1-1.5 cups marinara, or as much as you like
  • ½ cup mozzarella, or as much as you like


  • Pre-heat oven to 400F. Wash and cut the ends of the Jalapeños and discard the seeds with a knife or a spoon but be gentle. In a separate bowl add the ricotta, parm, egg, dash of salt and mix.
  • Take a small pan (we used 8 by 8) and add marinara sauce to cover the bottom (we used our own homemade sugo/sauce but you can use any store bought like Rao’s)
  • Take each jalapeño and with a tiny spoon or a piping bag add ricotta mixture to each one making sure you push it down gently.
  • Add them all to your baking dish, top with more marinara and some mozzarella.
  • Bake at 400F for 35-40 minutes or until nice and melted and the peppers are soft but also have a bite to them. Enjoy.



You can leave out the egg if you are intolerant. Feel free to use any marinara like Rao’s which is clean in ingredients. You are more than welcome to add basil to the ricotta but it’s up to you. If you can’t handle any heat then stuff mini bell peppers instead. Good quality Parmigiano reggiano is always best so please try to use the good stuff and grate it yourself.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
