So you like it spicy? Oh yassss, of course you do.
In our house you really have no choice but to love spicy foods. Our boys are being raised eating the same food Paul and I eat, and they love these little bacon wrapped jalapenos just as much as we do. These might just be the perfect appetizer (or snack or dare I say, entree?).
These little jalapeno poppers are a favorite, and perfect for grilling out or football parties, or any excuse to fire up the grill. Which, incidentally, is exactly why we chose this recipe today. As a bonus, almost all of these ingredients have been recent coupon deals.
Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos:
- 10-12 large jalapenos
- 4 oz shredded cheese (I use Monterey Jack)
- 1 8-oz brick of cream cheese
- 1 package of bacon
- Cavender’s seasoning (optional, but you want it)
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- splash of milk
- Skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak in water before grilling)
For these jalapeno poppers you’ll want to halve the jalapenos lengthwise, then be sure to clean out the membrane and seeds. Rinse with water.
WASH YOUR HANDS!
In a bowl, mix together softened cream cheese, shredded cheese, minced garlic and desired amount of Cavender’s Greek seasoning. Fill jalapeno halves with cheese mixture, then tightly wrap with bacon.
When finished, double skewer the jalapenos, and fire up the grill. Cook them on low or indirect heat until bacon is crispy. Enjoy!
If you are not firing up the grill, you could stick them in the broiler for about 20 minutes, then let sit for about 5 – 10minutes to firm the cheese back up. Don’t they look absolutely delish?! Make some for your next football party (and GET IN MY BELLY!)
