    Serves: 16 

    • 8 ounces cream cheese
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
    • 16 fresh jalapeno chillies with stems
    • 8 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat BBQ to medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
    2. Mix together the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and Cheddar cheese in a bowl until the mixture is thoroughly blended.
    3. Lay a jalapeno chilli onto a work surface and cut a lengthwise sliver from the side of the chilli, exposing the seeds and white membrane. With the handle of a teaspoon, scrape out the seeds and membrane, leaving the hollow chilli. Repeat for the rest of the chillies. Chop up the chilli slices then mix into the cheese stuffing. Stuff each chilli with cheese mixture then wrap each stuffed chilli in a half bacon slice. Secure with toothpicks.
    4. Grill the poppers on a less-hot part of the BBQ until the chillies are hot and juicy and the bacon is browned, 30 to 40 minutes.

    These are great. But SUPER HOT! I also cheated and cooked them in the oven. Turned out great. I also added garlic and onion powder to the cheese mixture.  -  05 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    INCREDIBLE!!! These are always a hit when I serve them. A few changes I made: (1) I use a liittle less garlic powder in the cheese mixture, (2) I add a piece of sliced sausage before I wrap the bacon around the pepper, and (3) I cut the jalapenos in half instead of just removing a sliver and stuffing that way. You have got to try these.. .thanks Pedally!!!  -  03 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband didn't care for the poppers. Not just these poppers, he didn't like any. I think they would be easier in the oven, as suggested by others. I found them quite tasty and easy to do. I opted to split the jalapeno to get the seeds and membranes out and then reserved a few jalapenos to use to mix with the cream cheese mixture.  -  18 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
