Little story behind these. I worked at the bank awhile back (this was maybe almost ten years ago) and we had a pot luck. A guy I worked with at the time, Pablo, brought these in and I thought they were the most delicious thing ever!
Everyone uses jalapeños to make poppers but these were with yellow chilies. They also weren’t fancy like how most wrap the bacon around the pepper. They were simple!
I brought some home to share with my husband and he loved them as well. After we analyzed them we were like, “these are actually really easy to make!” And now we make them all the time for gatherings or cook outs.
Thank you Pablo!
Servings: 16-20 peppers
Note: you will need a grill and someone who knows how to work the grill.
What You Need:
8 to 10 yellow chiles (each Chile makes two poppers)
8oz of cream cheese
2 cups of shredded cheddar or mixed cheese
1 pack of bacon cooked and cut or broke into 1 inch pieces give or take
Bacon tip: instead of frying, save yourself some time and bake at 400 for 15 to 20 mins and a pan sheet lined with foil. So much better, trust me.
1. Cut all the peppers in half removing all seeds. Smooth on cream cheese onto each pepper, add cheese on peppers, then lay a pieces of bacon on each pepper.
2. Grill the peppers on low medium heat for about 15 minutes. When the cheese is melted and the bottoms begin to char they are complete.
These are so good and easy! Enjoy!
