    We grill out a lot in the summer and my DH has been making these with the jalapeños he grows...

    He cuts the peppers in half and removes the seeds. Sets aside.
    Softens some cream cheese, mixes it with a little ranch dressing mix. ( not sure of the exact ratio), I think its a whole block of cream cheese to half a packet of ranch.
    Then cuts some thin sliced bacon in half and microwaves it just a little (so it browns quicker on the grill).
    Stuffs the pepper with the cream cheese wraps the semi-pre cooked bacon around it secures it with a tooth pick, then grills them.

    They are SOOO good!!!!

    Thanks for sharing. That sounds wonderful. I love the cream cheesed stuffed peppers, this takes it to another level. Bacon, anything wrapped in bacon [​IMG]. I'll be trying this soon!!

    Jalepeno sliced in half, take out seeds.
    Brick of cream cheese soft
    1/2 Tbsp of minced garlic
    1 bag of shreaded cheese

    optinal 1/2 tsp of horseradish

    Put on knife spread in half pepper and eat.

    sounds similar to what I do. I take the top off of the jalapenos, poke a small hole in the bottom with a toothpick, and take the seeds out, and then stuff a chunk of cheddar in each one and wrap in bacon. We have a jalapeno holder to cook them in on the grill. You have to put 2 toothpicks in them so that they do not fall through the holes.

  8. My father and I would go out to are garden and pick fresh jalepano's cut the top off and drop in the deep fryer and have some beers they're actual good that way.

    Plus I make jalepano jelly. Very good with cream cheese and bagel.

    I reccomend melting the cream cheese in a saucepan--thin it out with a little sour cream, and add your flavorings.

    Then take a syringe (we call them flavor injectors in my house), fill with mixture, and poke two holes in the top of the jalepeno. In hole #2, inject the mix until full: a little cream will come out hole #1.

    Then grill, broil, bake--whatever. They freeze REALLY well this way--which is great because we end up with a coupla hundred pounds of various peppers by winter. Good Christmas gifts & for parties.

    The bacon could be added if you cooked it & tossed it in the food processer.
