Easy appetizer recipes for the grill - Jalapeno Bombers
These stuffed Jalapeno Peppers (called Jalapeno Bombers) really are one of the most easy appetizer recipes for the grill that you'll ever make.
I first experienced these spicy grilled appetizers at a friends home several years ago. It was intriguing to watch this native from Texas grill up something other then beef!
Cut the Jalapeno's in half, scoop them out and fill them with cream cheese (plain or flavored). Wrap them in thin bacon and on the grill they go.
The trick is to use thin bacon so it cooks quickly and to wrap the bacon carefully so you don't lose any cream cheese on the grill.
These are great little appetizers with a nice slow burn - serve them right off the grill.
They'd make great Superbowl appetizers too!
Serves: 3 - 6
Prep time: 8 minutes
Oil the grates well. Preheat BBQ to medium-high (325F - 375F)
Slice each Jalapeno pepper in 1/2 length-wise.
Cut off the stems.
Remove the seeds and membranes from inside the peppers and rinse the scooped-out peppers under cold water.
Wrap a 1/2 slice of bacon around each cheese filled jalapeno and secure with a tooth-pick.
Try to cover as much of the cream cheese as possible to avoid leakage.
In 6 minutes lift the lid, check the bacon on grill-side of the jalapeno - if it looks done then flip the bombers.
If they look done like these then remove from the grill and serve immediately.
You'll likely have a group of people standing around you by this point so just start handing them out.
Enjoy these easy appetizer recipes!
