adventures in grilling: jalapeno poppers

Grilling is one of our favorite summertime activities.  With my husband's busy schedule, it is so nice to find some time to sit by the pool, talk about our day, and cook dinner together. 

Last night, we tried a new Texas-inspired recipe: Bacon-Wrapped Cheddar Jalapeño Poppers. 

Buyer Beware: Those jalapeño seeds will make your hands, nose, lips, eyes, (anything and everything) burn like the dickens for hours on end. 

Bacon-Wrapped Cheddar Jalapeño Poppers


12 jalapeño peppers, cut in half, seeds and veins removed
12 slices of thick-cut bacon
1/2 cup of cream cheese
1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 skewers

Mix cream cheese and cheddar cheese together in a bowl until evenly blended. Fill each jalapeño half with the cheese mixture and then wrap with 1/2 slice of bacon. Place 6 jalapeños on each skewer and grill until slightly-charred and bubbly.
