Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 (26 ounce) canof whole jalapenos (about 15-20 total, I've used La Costena brand, they work good)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package monterey jack pepper cheese
  • 20 slices of uncooked bacon
  • toothpick

Directions

  1. Cut jalapeños from top to bottom on one side (don't cut them all the way through).
  2. Under the sink, wash out and gut the insides of the jalapeños.
  3. Cut and place pieces of cheese to fit inside the jalapeños.
  4. Wrap the jalapeños with a strip of bacon (be sure not to wrap them too tight, the bacon will shrink).
  5. Put a tooth pick through the jalapeño to hold the bacon in place.
  6. Grill jalapeños on a BBQ flipping constantly until bacon is done, usually no more than 5-10 minutes. Be careful of large flames.
  7. Serve immediately or refrigerate and heat up in oven.
