    Tried and true - Cream cheese and Lil' Smokies. We like to dice up the lil' smokies and mix them into the softened (not melted) cream cheese. Keep a little bit of the seeds in on at least a few of them. If you want almost no heat, devein/deseed/and wash throughly before stuffing. Some would say to wear gloves when working with Jalapenos. Cheap thin bacon for the wrap. 2 toothpicks...

    Have fun...they are a blast!

    I've only done them once, but they were killer. I used Neufchatel (much like cream cheese) and Mexican-style pork chorizo. Removed the sausage from the casing and fried it up in ABT-sized chunks - let them cool. Pressed the chorizo nuggets into the cheese loaded boats. Sprinkled with Dizzy Dust before and after wrapping in apple-smoked bacon. 400° high in the dome on a grid extender over a drip pan - about 45 min.

    I'm with you on those Lil'Smokies. They're the best and easy to prepare.

    Are you able to find jalapenos for this?

    i've been doing them with cream cheese, a little fresh garlic mixed in, a slice of country ham and of course the cheap/thin bacon wrap. Also, for my wife who hates hot stuff, i've put them on small poblano peppers--just enough for a touch of spice without being too "hot."

    I like using pickled jalapenos with different combos of a local smoked sausage or andouille, shrimp, smoked greuyer, cream cheese, smoked gouda. Name you can put it on.

  • My only recommendation is to forgo the toothpicks. I LOVE those little suckers.

    1. cream cheese mixed with paul Newman's mango salsa..stuff the jalapenos and put pulled pork or l'il
    smokey on top and wrap in bacon...indirect with a drip pan at 375 for 30-40 minutes

    2. Leftover cheese grits stuffed in the jalapeno with a small piece of country ham or L'il smokey wrapped in bacon...cooked the same way as above... :P

    Your second suggestion sounds great. It could be the side at breaskfast with a couple of eggs and toast. I'm liking this one....

    No problem in Austin - there are more sources than McAllen/Agricola.
  • JeevesJeeves Posts: 461
    I stand corrected... They recalled them ALL OVER, so the ones I have are in question...

    I'll start another thread
  • I mix cream cheese and jalapeno jack cheese (chopped up) and stuff 'em with that ..then the bacon on the outside...I prefer Oscar Meyer ...just seems to get crispier. ...then .. a little sprinkle of any one of a number of rubs (lately I've bene using the Lotta Bull brand) and my guests always go wild !!

    Haven't seen you for a while. Everything good? My abt's are ricotta, thyme, Monterrey Jack, pulled pork or chorizo. Slit them from bottom to stem and wrap with thin, streched bacon. A little beer and chipoltle sauce and thats it.

    No japalo's available here!! Now that local tomato's are available it has changed to japalo's. I think the source of this new outbreak must be Charmin'. Please use caution. :unsure: TNmike

    Ground sirloin browned in a skillet with your choice of taco seasoning, Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy, or Mrs. Dash Chipotle. Stuff the jalapenos with the beef, add a stick of hot pepper smoked cheese on top, wrap with bacon, smoke with mesquite at 250-300 for 90 minutes. Pure heaven, plain and simple.

    First year I've ever decided to grow my own and boy am I glad i did. Already picked 8 of em' lastnight and will clean and stuff them today. Find a local farm market or start asking around and I bet you find plenty of locally grown for sale. Just a thought.
