OK. Who can grill without including pork cheese and chiles? These are sooooo good and easy, too. This was the appetizer for Memorial Day dinner.
This is Baby Lady’s favorite appetizer. For those of you who have never tried this appetizer, I’m sorry. This is an incredible appetizer. It’s even better than cheddar poppers. Cheddar poppers have only cheese and jalapeños, deep fried (which is real good). These little gems have the World’s favorite fat, BACON (we like Applewood Bacon, you can substitute what you consider to be the world’s best bacon), along with cheese and jalapeños and are grilled. Super easy, no fuss, no mess and absolutely bacony, cheesy, peppery, delicious. Then, you get to buy this cute little tray to put on your grill to cook them. What can be better than this????
- 9 large spicy jalapenos
- 1/4 lb Iberico cheese (or your favorite cheese)
- 4-1/2 slices of bacon
- 9 toothpicks
Cut off the stem of the jalapeños and core out the seeds. If you want a milder pepper take out as much ribbing was possible.
Cut the cheese into strips long enough to fit in the chiles. Fill the chiles with cheese.
Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around the jalapeño. Insert a toothpick through the bacon and jalapeño to keep the bacon in place and to ensure the jalapeño doesn’t slip through the holes of the cute little holder.
Place the grill with the stuffed, bacon wrapped jalapeños on your grill over medium heat.
Cook until the bottom of the chiles turn brown, the bacon has cooked and the cheese has melted inside.
Remove from the grill. Serve and enjoy.
