I love kitchen tools and I love trying new things. Thanks to a the gift of a Jalapeño Pepper Roaster from a very thoughtful friend, we tried our hand at "standing up" Jalapeño Poppers on the grill. This was timely as I am trying to make summer last by grilling outside as much as possible.
There are lots of recipes online but I made up my own using ingredients I had in the fridge. We had pizza camp pies earlier so I had a few items leftover that were perfect.
Jenny's Pepper Poppers
I stuffed each pepper with a little bit of each of the following.
Jalapeño pepper jack cheese
Then Aaron cooked them on the bbq grill for about half an hour.
Note I wore gloves to handle the raw peppers. I've made the mistake of using my bare hands before and paid for it when I took my contacts out later that night.
The peppers had a delightful grilled flavor while the cream cheese cooled down the heat. Nice for an appetizer or as we had them, along with a grilled steak. The roaster was really helpful, because it kept all the cheesy goodness from leaking out of the peppers!
