My take on the cheesiest jalepeno poppers! I had these at a party years ago and they have been one of my favorite cookout snacks ever since. Except...they needed more cheese, and that's just what I did! I dare you to eat just one!

  • 1/2 c
    shredded sharp cheddar

How to Make Heaven wrapped in bacon

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the stem off of each jalepeno and slice diagonally down the middle, resulting in two jalepeno halves.
  2. Remove all seeds and pulp from each jalepeno half. I use a spoon to avoid getting it on my hands. Becareful and wash your hands afterwards.
  3. If you like your jalepeno's spicy you can skip this step, but after de-seeding the peppers i drop them into a bowl of warm water, just to take some of the heat out.
  4. Mix all of your cheeses in a bowl until well blended. I then spoon the cheese mixture into the corner of a gallon size ziplock bag and cut a hole in the corner, so that I can pipe the cream cheese mixture right into the peppers. If you don't have a ziplock bag, you can spoon the mixture into each pepper. It's just a little messier.
  5. Once they are all filled with the cream cheese mixture, wrap each pepper in half a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick
  6. grill the peppers over indirect heat for 20-30 minutes, turning half way through. Time varies, so remove from grill when bacon is crispy.
  7. Let cool, and enjoy!
