Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos Recipe

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos Recipe

Sunday is grill-out day for my husband, Cliff, and these zesty peppers are some of his specialties. We usually feature them at our annual Daytona 500 party. They disappear from the appetizer tray in no time.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour Grill: 35 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 24 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 1 pound uncooked chorizo or bulk spicy pork sausage
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 bacon strips, cut in half


  • 1. Make a lengthwise cut in each jalapeno, about 1/8 in. deep; remove seeds. Combine the sausage and cheese; stuff into jalapenos. Wrap each with a piece of bacon; secure with toothpicks.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 36-40 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°, turning once. Grill, covered, over direct heat for 1-2 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"We love stuffed jalapeno peppers and these are the best so far. They are even good cold out of the fridge. Peppers are large and plentiful in the garden this year and I made two batches this week-end and had no leftovers. Absolutely YUMMY !!"

"I have made these a few times up at our campground. They dissapper...I made them to bring to a "Mexican themed night" and everyone was asking for the recipe. I myself have never tried them, I do not like hot food. Remember to wear disposable gloves when handleing to peppers & removing the seeds. I will be making them for superbowl."

"Our guests enjoyed these poppers. They are super and not the same old same old. Instead of the grill I baked them in the oven. In the last minutes I used the broiler to crisp the bacon a bit more. Terrific"

"Have made these now a half dozen times...each time terrific. Make sure you remove ALL seeds or it will be hot! You can also cook them indoors on sprayed broiler pan for about 1/2 hour at 350 and then stick under broiler for a few minutes."
