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
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.
