Grilled Bacon Wrapped Poppers

Jalapeno poppers are so delicious. I love the slight heat paired with the robust flavor of the cheese and bacon. What better way than to grill them?

INGREDIENTS:

  • 7.5 oz Whipped Chive Cream Cheese
  • 1 Piece of Bacon Per Jalapeno
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese (I use cheddar but use your favorite)
  • Desired amount of poppers ( I usually make between 10 and 15 of these)
  • 1 Toothpick per Jalapeno

*** Soak the toothpicks in water for 10-15 minutes before using them.***DSC_0697

  1. Cook bacon in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 17-18 minutes. They will be pliable but done. These will crisp up on the grill.
  2. Set out the cream cheese and shredded cheese for 30 minutes and then mix them together in a large bowl. 
  3. Core the jalapenos. Remove the seeds and vein.

  4. Stuff the cheese mixture into each jalapeno. 
  5. Wrap each with a piece of bacon securing the bacon with the toothpick. DSC_0705
  6. On the grill turn all of the burners on high and let it sit closed for 15 minutes. 
  7. Turn off 1/3 of the burners on the grill. I place each popper in a stand I have for this recipe. Place the stand with poppers on the side of the grill that is off. Leave the other half still on high.
  8. Cook them on indirect heat with the lid shut for 15-20 minutes. 
  9. Let them cool. popppers

ENJOY!
