Jalapenos del Raton

Jalapenos del Raton

"My dad made these grilled poppers and I begged for the recipe. Now everyone begs me for the recipe. They are stuffed with cream cheese and sausage, wrapped in turkey bacon, and grilled--the perfect balance of flavors, and not always super spicy. The spiciness depends on the peppers. I find that the smaller they are, the hotter they are."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Lightly oil the grate.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage until browned. Drain excess grease, and set aside. Meanwhile, slice the peppers in half lengthwise, and remove and discard the seeds and membrane. Fill one half of each pepper with cream cheese, and the other half with sausage. Put the pepper halves back together, and wrap with a slice of bacon to hold. Secure bacon with a toothpick.
  3. Grill peppers for about 15 minutes, turning to ensure even cooking until bacon is crisp, and pepper is toasted. Let them cool down a bit, then eat 'em.

I made a slight variation. I cooked the sausage and pre-mixed it with the cream cheese. Stuffed halfed jalapenos and wrapped each half with 1/2 slice bacon. Put on cookie sheet and baked. I ...

I made these again for a cookout the other night and got so many compliments and requests for the recipe. I have made them many times, with turkey sausage and pork sausage and they are always gr...

Great! I tried 1/2 turkey bacon and 1/2 center cut "real" bacon (the kind that has as much fat as many turkey bacon strips), and the center cut bacon was better. I also used reduced fat cream ...

Very good - made exactly as the recipe stated. Too hot for my mouth so I soaked the halved jalapenos in milk for about 5 minutes to take some of the heat out of the peppers before stuffing wrap...

I mixed the sausage with the cream cheese and stuffed 1/2 the jalepano and wrapped that 1/2 in regular bacon and put it in the oven til the bacon crisped and the cream cheese just started to ooz...

I have a favorite jalepeno recipe and decided to give this one a try, not bad but pretty high cal. Try stuffing pepper with chicken & bacon wrap then grill.

very good and not at all as "hot" as I thought they would be- everyone loved them- next time I'll try broiling them.

I have done a variation of this recipe for years and find if I microwave the halved peppers for 60-90 seconds after I remove the seeds that their is no issue on them being done on the grill. If ...

WOW! I took these to a family BBQ and every adult chowed down on them. They were perfect while we were relaxing and playing cards. We couldn't get enough. They were a bit time consuming but w...
