I am rating these on taste. YUMMMMYY. I bit finicky to cook. I used 8 small-medium jalepenos and cut the cheese mixture in half and still had a bit leftover. So unless they are large jalepenos there will be cheese leftover and I am ot sure if half a slice of bacon would cover well it barely covered the smallish ones I used . I used a cast iron fry pan on the barbeque since I had a feeling the cheese might ooze out when cooking and it did. I started them in the pan then put on the grill for a few minutes and then once the cheese started oozing out they went back into the pan I did not want to lose any of that cheesy goodness LOL All in all I will be making these again .

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl combine the cheeses, cilantro, sundried tomatoes and corn kernels together.
  2. Cut jalapeno peppers lengthwise down 1 side, leaving the other side intact (creating an open book); leave the top and stem on.
  3. Using the handle of a spoon scrape the seeds and membranes out of the pepper. Note if you want extra spice leave some inches.
  4. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture into the cavity of each pepper.
  5. Wrap each pepper in bacon and secure it in place with a wooden toothpick.
  6. Prepare your barbecue. Place a drip pan under barbeque grates to prevent flare ups.
  7. Place a grill screen over the drip pan directly on top of the grill grate.
  8. Preheat barbeque to medium heat 325°F (160°C).
  9. Oil the grill grate to help prevent sticking.
  10. Place the stuffed peppers onto the grill plate and cook with the lid up for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy. Turn the peppers frequently for even cooking.
