Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Course Side Dish
Cuisine American
Method Grill
Servings 14 – 18 Poppers

Ingredients
 

  • 18 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces colby jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon Mrs Dash SW Chipotle Seasoning
  • 1 pound bacon, (1 slice per jalapeno)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat grill to medium high.
  • Slice jalapenos lengthwise from stem to tip, leaving the stem intact. Use a small spoon to scrape the seeds and veins from jalapenos.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cheeses and seasoning. Gently squeeze the stem and tip of jalapeno to open the sliced pocket. Add about 1½ tablespoons of mixture to each jalapeno. Set aside.
  • Wrap each jalapeno with a slice of bacon using 1 or 2 toothpicks to secure the bacon.
  • Place poppers on the grill cut side down. YES, down. Once the top has cooked and the cheese starts to soften, use a spatula to loosen the bacon from the grill and flip. Cook until bacon is cooked through about 10-15 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Donna’s Notes

If you have a problem with flare-ups on your grill, place a piece of aluminum foil over the grill grates and set the poppers on top.
You can also bake these in the oven. Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes.

  1. Yummy! My husband would make himself sick on these. Hope you are doing well – think of you often.

  2. We make something similar & have for ages. We just use cream cheese & wrap w/the bacon & grill. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!!

  3. This is one of our favorite appetizers of all time. I'm smoking a brisket right now and now I am disappointed that I didn't make any of these to go along with it.
