Grill a batch of this four-ingredient appetizer with a flavor kick for your next gathering. You’ll need a jalapeño grilling rack for this crowd-pleasing Mexican snack. Look for one at a kitchenware store or an online cookware website. When selecting the scallions for this recipe, look for bunches that have vibrant green leaves with the roots still attached. To properly chop them, use a chef's knife to cut off the ends of the root and bunch them together. You can make the sausage and cheese mixture ahead of time or double the recipe and serve it on crackers or toasted French bread rounds.
