i have recently been hearing a funny noise when i turn off my jeep coming from the radiator and i just realized it was the return hose that connects from under the radiator cap to the recovery tank, it looks like there was a nipple of some kind coming from the radiator that the hose slid over and is now broken off.... any idea how to fix this??

I think it's plastic... epoxy might hold better than JB Weld. But either way, it's a temp fix at best... replace radiator.

I assumed plastic, but you did make me think; if its still the copper/brass it could be soldered back on.

But just like you say, either way its temporary and will be prone to failure in the future.
