Once You Pop The Fun Don't Stop

We finally saw some sunshine and seasonal temperature this weekend which were both long overdue! The warm weather got me excited to start grilling and I decided to try out these Grilled Jalapeños Poppers. I love jalapeños poppers and these were a great alternative to the traditional recipe. However next time I’m going to add a little salsa or something extra to give these a little more of a kick!

Grilled Jalapeños Poppers

For stuffed jalapeños:
3 slices of bacon
6 ounces whipped cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
2 scallions, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Salt, to taste
12-15 medium-sized jalapeños, halved lengthwise, seeds and veins removed
1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
2. Slice jalapeños in half, length wise. Using a paring knife remove seeds.
3. Cook the bacon in a skillet or oven until crispy. Let cool and crumble using a knife or your hands.
4. Mix the bacon, cream cheese, jack cheese, scallions, lime juice, garlic, and salt in a large bowl.
5. Divide the cheese and bacon mixture between each of jalapeño halves, filling each completely.
6. Place the pepper on a lightly oiled grill (a grill pan or grill stone will work, too). Cover and grill the peppers 7-9 minutes until the bottom has browned and the cheese has melted.
7. Arrange the jalapeños on a platter and serve.
