Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos

Ahem.  I am ashamed to admit I have not posted since October.  How did that happen?!?!  But I'm back, and with an amazingly awesome appetizer!  My kids (yes, the picky ones!) could not get enough of these!!  I already plan to go back to the market tomorrow for more jalapenos.  Enjoy!!


  • 2 slices bacon
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 c. shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 c. minced green onions
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 14 jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • cooking spray
  • 2 TBS chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 small tomato, chopped and seeded
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat
  2. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp.  Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels.  Crumble bacon.  Combine crumbled bacon, cheeses, green onions, lime juice, kosher salt and garlic in a bowl.  Stir to combine.
  3. Divide cheese evenly and fill the pepper halves.
  4. Place peppers, cheese side up, on grill rack or grill grate coated with cooking spray.  Cover and grill peppers for 8 minutes or until bottoms of peppers are charred and cheese mixture is lightly browned.  Place the peppers on a serving platter
  5. Sprinkle with cilantro and tomato.
