Alright, alright, alright. Fire up the grill for a little fire in your mouth. Winter grilling just got hotter with these spicy, delicious bites. Yeow.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 15 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 15 pieces of bacon (approximately 1 lb)  
  • 1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese

  • ½ tsp. chipotle powder
  •  ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your grill to medium high.
  2. Slice all jalapenos lengthwise from tip to stem, leaving the stem attached. Scrape the seeds and membrane out of the peppers.
  3. In a bowl, combine the cheeses and seasonings.
  4. Carefully squeeze a jalapeno to open the sliced pocket, and add 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixture. Repeat with each jalapeno.
  5. Wrap each jalapeno with a piece of bacon, securing with a toothpick.
  6. Place poppers on the grill with opening down, grilling until the top begins to cook. Flip carefully and grill another 15 minutes, ensuring the bacon is cooked completely through.
