Frisky Eats: Kristin Cavallari Helps Us Cook Up Some Delicious And Spicy Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

These Were Soooo Good!

Football season is in full swing, and all that time spent rejiggering your fantasy team, debating with your coworkers about who has better defense, and going hoarse screaming at the television screen every Thursday, Sunday and Monday works up quite an appetite. Who better to show us how to whip up some tasty tailgating snacks than Kristin Cavallari, foodie, shoe designer, football fan, wife to the Chicago Bears’ Jay Cutler and mom to sons Jackson and Camden. (Oh yeah, and you probably recognize her from two little shows called “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach.”) Kristin already showed me how to make some seriously simple, delicious, sweet and salty bacon-wrapped butternut squash. Now that I’ve cleaned my plate, it’s time for tailgating snack number two — sausage-stuffed jalapeno poppers.

8 Useless Things I Learned In Home Economics Class (And How They Failed Me)

Sewing Machine
