Grilled Jalapeno Poppers are a jalapeno stuffed with cheesey goodness, wrapped in smokey bacon then grilled to perfection.
Appetizer, Side Dish
grated sharp cheddar cheese
each onion powder
Preheat grill to medium heat. Clean and oil grates.
In a small bowl combine the cream cheese, cheddar, onion powder and garlic powder, set aside.
Carefully cut each jalapeno in half horizontally leaving the stem intact (try to split the stem in half too) Using a spoon scrape out the ribs and seeds. Wear gloves while doing this or wash immediately after you are done.
Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese mixture then wrap a piece of bacon around the pepper. Make sure to wrap well and cover all of the cheese. Secure bacon with 1-2 toothpicks. Place on the grill cheese side down first and grill for a total of 15 minutes (or until bacon is cooked through) Watch your peppers carefully and turn often to help avoid flare ups. If flare ups are becoming a problem place a piece of foil on the grates then place peppers on top.
