I’ll be the first to admit it: My spice tolerance is pretty pathetic.

However, if you put some cooling creamy cream cheese in a jalapeño, then pile on some sweet BBQ pulled pork, well, I’m down.

Oh, Jalapeños. Spicy and oh so full of life, we have to find a way to tame you. // For those pathetic spice intolerant people. (ME)

These Pork Stuffed Jalapeños are just like another entertaining favorite of mine: Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers.

Ooooo baby, I’ll devour these one after another, mouth on fire, feeling the heat just run down into my stomach. #ItsSoWorthItStuffed Jalapeños Peppers Recipe with Pulled Pork Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Healthy

TIP: WEAR GLOVES WHILE CLEANING AND DE-SEEDINGJALAPEÑOS! // Needs to be in All Caps for emphasize here.

Unless you grew up on these and eating them whole like R, I don’t recommend dealing with jalapeños without gloves.

If you grew up in a household like mine where spice just simply wasn’t there, you’ll want those gloves.

R has no problem cutting these with his bare hands and washing them. // Sorcery.

On the other hand, I once did that and three days later I rubbed my eye while sleeping and the jalapeño juices somehow were still on my hands. Oh, the burn!

Learn from my mistake and wear those gloves.

If you want to make these dairy-free, you have two options:

Option One: Replace the cream cheese with a dairy-free cream cheese option. Or even use the dairy-free cheese dip recipe here.

Option Two: Omit the cream cheese completely. This option only works if you have a higher spice tolerance. The cream cheese helps with cooling the dish down, but honestly, these jalapeños are the perfect little vessels to shovel loads of pulled pork into your mouth.

That is the real mission.

Stuffed Jalapeños Peppers Recipe with Pulled Pork Gluten-Free Dairy-Free HealthyYou can use easy Farm Rich Smokehouse Pulled Pork BBQ as a quick alternative to making it yourself. We especially love this on days we don’t have time for the meat to de-thaw from the freezer AND cook in the crockpot.

The struggle is real. We always forget to take the meat out that morning or the night before to de-thaw in time for dinner.

You can find these in the freezer section of your grocery store. This pulled pork goes directly into the oven from the freezer, so no de-thaw time, no nothing. // AMAZING.

If you do have the time and planned ahead for your party, there are some great recipes in the Gluten-Free Party Food Cookbook, including an easy homemade BBQ sauce.

We are in business. Keep those spicy and sweet jalapeño vessels coming.
