Also known as Atomic Buffalo Turds, Armadillo turds and all sorts of other animals that need to do various things. By the by, this is my first time trying to blog using the Windows Live Writer so hopefully this post won’t stand out terribly, but if so, you know why!
The process for making these are probably just what you’d imagine it to be. But I need a reason to show off some pretty pictures right? I recommend wearing some food quality plastic gloves for this process by the way. Here are the ingredients I’ve used. Cream cheese, jalapeños, bacon. I think you can use whatever white cheese you’d like, but something milder would probably work better. Pepper jack might actually be interesting, but probably redundant.
Slice the peppers in half.
Remove the seeds.
And stuff with cheese of your choice! Cream cheese is advantageous in terms of ease.
Wrap each pepper half in half of a bacon slice. Or a whole slice if you’re feeling particularly sumptuous. Spear with a toothpick to secure the bacon. Do a better job of me with covering all of the cheese with bacon if you’re going to be grilling and need to turn it over due to overly hot temperatures in the case you don’t have full control over the charcoal.
Grill or baking the stuffed peppers. If grilling, I’d recommend indirect heat if possible, covering and keeping an eye on it, checking it say, every 5 minutes until cooked. As I didn’t have that option I actually had to flip it onto both sides to cook the bacon. If baking, it is 10-15 minutes in a 450 degree oven.
Once finished, have a cold beer or perhaps a glass of milk ready and enjoy!
