DIRECTIONS

  • Cut peppers in half.
  • Use a spoon to remove the seeds and white membranes.
  • Fill each half with the cheese.
  • Cut the bacon slices in half so that you have 24 shorter slices.
  • Wrap each cheese stuffed jalapeño with a bacon slice; secure with toothpicks if you need to or slide them on skewers.
  • Grill over hot coals until the bacon is crispy and browned, turning every few minutes (stay with them and watch for flare ups from the dripping bacon fat or they will burn); grill for about 15 or 20 minutes.
  • The bacon should be crisp, the jalapeño crisp tender and the cheese should be hot.
