Servings: 24 pieces
- 12 large jalapenos
- 1 package of cream cheese softened, 8oz
- 1 cup shredded cheese (mozzarella Monterey jack, cheddar, etc)
- ½ cup of diced Andouille or Smoked Sausage
- 2 t . BBQ seasoning
- 12 slices of thinly sliced bacon cut in half
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place a baking rack on top of a baking sheet and set aside. Cut each jalapeno in half lengthwise (latex or rubber gloves are a good idea here). Using a knife or a small spoon remove the seeds and membrane from each jalapeno half and set aside. Continue with the rest of the peppers.
In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, shredded cheese, sausage, and barbecue seasoning until well combined. Fill each half with about a teaspoon of the cream cheese filling. Then, snugly wrap each pepper half with a half slice of bacon and place on the baking rack. Continue with the remaining peppers. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the bacon is nice and crisp. Serve and enjoy!
Tip: If you have the grill or smoker going, cook these over indirect heat until the bacon is crisp!
