Jalapeno Poppers

Hi all,

Here is a recipe for simple Jalapeno Poppers. Would LOVE to hear alternatives!

For a history of the popper and photos, check out: http://www.meathunx.com/2012/10/the-intriguingly-spotty-story-of.html

The Crew
- 10 - 12 Jalapeños
- Cream Cheese
- Fresh Mozzarella
- 1 Shallot, Minced
- Tootkpicks

Ready the ships
Cut the stems of the Jalapeño without interrupting the top surface area. Then, halve the Jalapeños down the middle, length-wise. Be sure you keep each resulting half with it's partner, as you'll be putting them back together again shortly.

Abolish all Mutineers
Take a spoon and remove the entire inside membrane, including all seeds. God help you if you leave seeds in there.

Steady the Men
Fill one side of the split Jalapeño with cream cheese and minced shallots, and the other side with fresh mozzarella. Then close the two sides down on each other and secure with a toothpick. Step and repeat til you've made it through all 12.

Set Sail
Get the grill going at 325 direct heat, and put those poppers on down. Flip after 20 to make sure both sides get a good singe, and keep it going for another 20 - 25. When the cheese starts to ooze out the sides, you know you're done.

Attack
We took the poppers inside and stared at them apprehensively. Then I went for it while the others looked on nervously. It was a disaster. What felt like clear sailing turned into fricking Charybdis and the Sirens together on steroids. First my eyes watered, then I started sweating, then I closed my eyes, and just saw wild swirling patterns. I was indeed tripping on Jalapeño Poppers. And before you call me out, know I lived with an Indian roommate for 1 year, and a Texan for 2; so I ain't no slouch. Nevertheless, the only way I could continue was to put on some traditional Mexican garb and start drinking Mezcal as briskly as possible.

    =)) Funny story for sure, but I've never made a popper/ ABT without bacon. Must have been a sissy Texan if you lived with him for two years and you still can't eat jalapenos. I eat 'em plain. With breakfast. ;)

    First suggestion is to serve them as 1/2 of peppers over-filled with cheese.  This reduces the amount of pepper you will get in each bite.  And bacon does help hold some extra cheese inside.
