Hey y'all....it's Tuesday, which means it's time to pop on over to my sweet friend's place. Lisa is hosts a blog carnival, with her twin Lana. Come on over and share some yummies with us.

For my contribution, I want to share a super easy, and yummy appetizer:



fresh jalapenos, stems still on, but seeds and membrane taken out
grated "fiesta blend" cheese

First, wash all jalapenos. Split from stem to end. Open up and take the seeds and membrane out. (This is the hot part of the pepper. But don't worry, you won't remove ALL the heat.

Fill pepper with grated cheese....only enough so that the pepper can close around it.

Wrap pepper with 1 slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.

Throw on the grill, split side up, for about 2-3 minutes. Turn over and grill until bacon is cooked.

YUMMY!!!! These are good as they are, but I imagine salsa, or ranch would be good, too. Ranch if the peppers are especially hot.

LL~ some guys John works with know he likes different versions of cooked peppers so they told him to try them stuffed with nothing but plain peanut butter. We always did the cream cheese thing, so he was skeptical. He did it though, and absolutely loves them!! We have a pepper griller so he cooks them being held upright. They are now his favorite "redneck appetizer".
