Grilled Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Bombs

Millie Johnson


I got the original recipe from my oldest son , Craig . I tweaked it alittle by adding cilantro , salt and pepper.
* Spray your grates with a non-stick spray to prevent sticking !!!
I forgot to time myself cleaning and prepping the peppers. I'm taking a guess on that ! lol
