Makes 6 servings
Recipe by Chef Jennifer Hill Booker
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
12 jalapeno peppers
6 slices bacon cut in half thin sliced bacon works better
24 wooden toothpicks
|Preheat grill to 400*F.|
|Mix cream cheese and Cheddar cheese together in a bowl until evenly blended.
Cut a small hole, about the size of a quarter, in each jalapeno. Save the pieces of jalapeno you remove and leave the stems intact.
For a less spicy jalapeno: Use a small spoon, scrape out the seeds and membrane.
Fill each jalapeno with the cheese mixture.
Put the piece of jalapeno back in place and wrap each stuffed pepper with a half slice of bacon. Secure the bacon with a toothpick.
Arrange bacon-wrapped peppers on the prepared grill
|Grill until bacon is crispy, about 10 minutes, turning throughout the grilling process.|
