"Bite-sized cuts of filet mignon are stuffed with jalapeno-spiked cream cheese, wrapped in bacon, and grilled. This dish is very popular with our tailgating crowd at football games. Its very easy to prepare and only takes a few minutes to grill."

  1. Slice the steaks into 1/2-inch wide strips. Pound the strips to about half their original thickness. Place the steak in a bowl; pour the Italian dressing over the meat; allow to marinate at least 2 hours.
  2. Mix together the cream cheese and jalapeno pepper in a bowl; set aside. Remove the strips from the marinade and lay out on a flat surface. Spread about 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture on each strip.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  4. Remove the strips from the marinade and lay on a flat surface. Spread about 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture on each strip. Fold the meat around the cream cheese mixture to form a ball. Wrap each ball with a slice of bacon. Secure bacon with water-soaked toothpicks or metal skewers.
  5. Cook on preheated grill until steak is no longer pink, about 4 minutes per side.

Very good. Another way to cook is to put these under the broiler. I wrapped the bacon in the other direction than the steak wrap so it kept the cream cheese inside. Excellent recipe!! Thank you

I was a little scared to use filet to try this recipe out, but went ahead anyway. I'm glad I did, it was fantastic!! I think you could get similar results using a less expensive cut if you’re no...

I thought these turned out well. They were tasty. In the future I would add more "heat" to the cream cheese and probably use a cheaper cut of steak. I think it would work out great to use thi...

these were so delicious! I did not have any jalapeno, so I subbed saute'd shallots instead. Very tasty, it is a must to eat these with your fingers. They are so much better that way. I will t...

Loved it, My wife loved it, be careful not to cut the filet into too large of pieces. smaller sections were easier to cook. Im prefer spicy, so might add a little more jalopeno next time or a ...

These were fantastic! I did everything the same except forgot to pound down the meat. We put them in the oven at 450 and just left them there until the bacon looked done. Everyone raved!
