Smoked Jalapeño Poppers
The perfect spicy party snack! Very quick to cook and makes a great presentation. This recipe will hands down be the best poppers you have ever tasted.
-Preheat your grill to 250 degrees.
-Chop the tops off of your Jalapeño and scrape the seeds out with a knife.
-In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, minced garlic, and shredded cheddar. Blend these ingredients together until it is evenly mixed.
-Take your Jalapeño and stuff them with the cream cheese mixture about 80% of the way full.
-Cut the sourdough slices into squares and stuff 1 bread square into each Jalapeño to keep the contents inside.
-Wrap each pepper tightly with a bacon slice and try your best not to overlap. This will insure the bacon cooks evenly.
-Slide 2 toothpicks perpendicularly into each pepper to hold it all together.
-Cook the peppers at 250 for 60-75 minutes, depending on how crispy you want the bacon. I find the longer they go, the better. Enjoy!
