Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces cream cheese, sofetened
  • 1/4 Cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 Cup chopped green onions
  • 2 Teaspoons bacon bits
  • 1 Teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • salt to taste
  • 14 jalapeños, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • Texas hot sauce, optional

Directions

Preheat grill to medium-high. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions, bacon bits, lime juice, garlic, and salt to taste. Fill pepper halves evenly with cheese mixture.

Place in a container for easy transport. When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium-high. Place a sheet of aluminum foil onto grill rack, and carefully place peppers on foil, being sure they don’t fall between grates.

Cover and grill 8 to 10 minutes, or until the peppers begin to char and the cheese is melted. Garnish with a dash of Texas hot sauce if desired.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
