How to Make Jalapeno Poppers

Jalepeno Poppers are some of my favorite things to make when we BBQ. They are really easy to make, and everyone loves them! Although they aren't the healthiest side, they are the BEST! Warning: these can be spicy! If you are not a spicy food eater, be warned!

-Jalapeños (however many you want, remember 1 Jalapeño=2 Poppers!)
-Cream cheese (1 block usually is good for about 1 dozen jalapeños, depending on size of course)
-Uncooked bacon ( I cut them in half, so 1 piece=2 poppers)
-Rubber gloves (optional, this is to keep the spiciness off of your finger! I always forget and then my eyes burn when I take out my contacts!)

-While wearing gloves, rinse jalapeños, cut off the end with the stem, slice in half, and deseed

Step 2:
-Fill halves with cream cheese (put as much as you want in)
-Slice half a bacon slice, wrap around pepper, and stick a toothpick in to keep the bacon wrapped

Step 3:
-Once all the poppers are made, lay down some foil on a heated grill
-Add poppers to foil and cook

**Cooking time & heat are to your judgment, as everyone's grills are different! I usually wait until the bacon is crispy and they have a blackened bottom**

Step 4:
-Once finished, remove foil and poppers from grill, let cool and enjoy! (be sure to take toothpick out before eating!)
