Our friends Cort and Sharlene who live in Ohio always have the best appetizers and drinks. This is a new one they made for a party I attended this summer and they passed along the recipe. They describe it as a great tailgating snack, it’s fall so that will work!
I googled this recipe and it is all over the Internet. There are many different combinations of ingredients that you can use for fillers such as:
•Sun-dried tomatoes & basil
•Jack cheese & cilantro
•Chorizo & cheddar
•Crab meat, cheddar, lemon juice, dijon mustard, & cumin
•Cooked shrimp & prosciutto
Let us know if you come up with a good combo that we should try.
Here is their recipe
1 (8 ounce) packet of cream cheese, room temperature
1 packet of French Onion Soup Packet/Mix
1 package of Bacon
Preheat your grill.
Cut off the stems of the jalapenos and remove the seeds. Cut a slit on one side of each jalapeno. Mix the cream cheese and your filler together (French Onion Soup Packet). Then stuff the jalapenos with the mixture. Don’t overfill. After they are stuffed and the halves are pushed back together, wrap a piece of bacon around it and secure it with a toothpick.
You may want to use a drip pan in your grill. Grill, covered over direct heat for about 5-7 minutes per side.
