These stuffed peppers are one of our favorite BBQ dishes. I hope you'll also enjoy! All photos belong to Mr. Pete's Cajun Spices LLC.

How To Make spicy stuffed jalapeno peppers

  • 1
    Slice the jalapeno peppers right down the center. Use a small spoon to scoop out seeds and clean as shown in the picture. Note: Always use gloves when handling peppers, as you want to eliminate the possibility of the oils making contact with any part of your skin.
  • 2
    Sprinkle Mr. Pete's Cajun Seasoning over the ground pork and mix.
  • 3
    Spoon a bit of cream cheese inside each pepper half. I've found that it is easier to fill the peppers when the cream cheese is on the hard side.
  • 4
    Top peppers with the ground pork mixture to hold in the cream cheese.
  • 5
    Cut the entire package of bacon in half. Wrap each pepper with a half slice of bacon using a toothpick to hold it together.
  • 6
    Place the peppers on the bbq pit for about 30 to 45 minutes at a medium heat level. Then, place them on the top rack until you are ready to serve. They'll have your company coming back for seconds and possibly thirds!
