Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos
Ingredients
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cut into strips

  • 15 jalapeno peppers

  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

  • 1/4 cup real bacon bits

Directions
  1. Cut all jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and remove all seeds. (Wear gloves when dealing with the peppers as the oils from the peppers can burn skin - and don't touch your face!)

  2. Place a cheese strip in each pepper half; sprinkle with bread crumbs and bacon.

  3. Grill peppers, covered, over medium-hot heat for 4-6 minutes or until peppers are tender and cheese is melted. Serve warm. Makes 30.
