DIRECTIONS

  • I'm using this great grill rack I bought from Sur La Table. It basically just a stand for the peppers so you dont have to slice them in half longways and lets you make a whole stuffed pepper. It also comes with a really interesting tool to gut the jalapenos.
  • pre-heat oven to 400.
  • Cut stems off all Jalapenos and gut them of seeds.
  • Cut Cheddar Cheese into 12 "sticks" that you can shove into the jalapenos.
  • Cut 6 Bacon strips in half.
  • Stuff cheese stick into jalapeno.
  • Wrap pepper with bacon and "pin" it pepper using tooth picks.
  • Place peppers on grill rack and bake for 15 minutes.
