smoky-stuffed-jalapenos-with-bacon

With tailgating season right upon us, here is a great recipe to get you started! Courtesy of my good friends at Stubb’s BBQ, here is a winner of an appetizer platter: Smokey Stuffed Jalapenos with Bacon.

Ingredients

  • 24 fresh jalapenos, halved and seeded
  • 16 oz. cream cheese
  • ½ lbs. uncooked chorizo
  • 24 slices of bacon, cut into halves (about 2 lbs.)
  • 1 cup Stubb’s Smokey Mesquite Bar-B-Q Sauce

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat a skillet to medium heat. Remove the chorizo from the casing and cook over medium heat until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer chorizo to a paper towel lined plate to drain and cool.
  2. Mix the cream cheese and chorizo.
  3. Stuff each jalapeno half with cream cheese mixture. Wrap with half a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  4. Prepare the grill for direct cooking. Place peppers onto the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently. Baste peppers with Smokey Mesquite Bar-B-Q sauce in the last 2 minutes of cooking.
  5. Alternatively, cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 350°F, adding the Bar-B-Q Sauce during the last 10 minutes of cooking.

Thanks again to Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q.
