Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos Recipe

Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos Recipe

These cheese-stuffed jalapenos are always popular when my husband and I host a tapas (appetizers) party. There’s a flavor explosion in each crisp and tender pepper. —Mary Potter, Sterling Heights, MI
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika or paprika
  • 10 jalapeno peppers

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Cut a lengthwise slit down each pepper, leaving the stem intact; remove membranes and seeds. Fill each pepper with 1 tablespoon cheese mixture.
  • 2. Prepare grill for indirect heat. Place peppers in a disposable foil pan. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until peppers are tender and cheese is melted. Serve warm. Yield: 10 appetizers.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"First need to say that there wasn't one left on the plate. However I gave it a four star rating because I myself could not eat another one my mouth was on fire. However everyone else didn't seem to think so. I think like one person said it's a gamble if you get a hot one or not. Someone that likes the heat this is for them. I think the spices add to the heat. My husband loved them. However please please ensure that you wear gloves when working with peppers. After washing my hands I accidently touched my eye and had to flush it iout. GLOVES are a must!"

"It took a lot longer for the peppers to get soft for me - more like 25 - 30 minutes at 375f. Unfortunately, the peppers were not hot enough for me. Next time I'll make from my garden since they are ready to pick now! I think I will double up on the herbs as well."

"I've made this recipe a couple of times--so good. One change is I used mini peppers instead of jalapeno. The colored ones makes a pretty dish."

"Great recipe, time consuming, but worth it. I added a hand full of real bacon bits, some fresh chives, and a little sour cream. I substituted the paprika for some chipotle seasoning from Pampered Chef. It also made lots more than 10 peppers, but mine were small in size. It probably made 20+."

"My grandmother makes Jalapeno peppers with just cheddar cheese inside. It is good. Some of the peppers you will need water or some dairy product with it. We are like it is gambling if you get a hot one or a mild one."

"We apologize for the error, but the wrong photo was attached to this stuffed jalapeno recipe. The recipe is correct as published. However, if you elect to add some cooked crumbed bacon to the recipe, it'll be even better!

The correct photo will be posted here soon.

"The brown stuff on the cheese is where the cheese has burnt a little from grilling, just like mac & cheese when cooked in the oven. Thats the best part .... :)"

"Try adding 8 oz. cooked shrimp, coarsely chopped, to the cheese mixture prior to stuffing the jalapenos. Adds a wonderful dimension to an already great appetizer!"

"This appetizer practically flew off the plate. I grilled the stuffed peppers and then took them to a football party. When snack time came I just covered them in foil, popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes to warm up the stuffing."
