BBQ Grilled Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeño peppers stuffed with a cream cheese mixture wrapped in crispy bacon, grilled and then coated in bbq sauce.

Ingredients: – jalapeno peppers – cream cheese – cheddar cheese – bacon – barbecue sauce

The Steps

Step 1: Turn the grill on medium heat.  Slice jalapeños in half long ways.  Remove the seeds from the jalapenos using a small spoon.

Step 2: Mix together room temperature cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese.  Fill the jalapeno halves with the cream cheese mixture.

Step 3: Wrap the jalapenos in bacon. Make sure the seam of the bacon is in the back so it does not come unraveled. Place the jalapenos on a baking sheet.

Step 4: Place the baking sheet on the grill grates.  Close the lid of the grill and allow the bacon to fry while the jalapenos bake for about five minutes.  Flip the jalapenos and close the grill lid.  After about 2-3 minutes, flip the jalapenos again.  Baste the poppers with barbecue.  Let cool about 5 minutes and serve.

Hint: add seasoning to the cream cheese filling to add extra flavor. For an extra kick of spice, add chili powder or crushed red pepper flakes.
