Question Jalepeno popper idea?

Gonna make some poppers this Sunday for Daytona Day. Instead of just filling the peppers with cream cheese and wrapping in bacon, how about using pimento cheese for the filling? What do y'all think?

We made them with tenderized deer meat, smaller portion of cream cheese, and added some muenster cheese. I think the cream cheese overpowered anything else we did, but i like where this is going. We plan on experimenting a little more as well and cook poppers once, if not twice a month.

I’ve seen my cousin make breakfast sausage in a pan. Drain the fat and juice then mix it with the cream cheese and use a cake icier to squeeze the mix in the jalapeño. Then wrap with bacon. Instead of cutting the jalapeño in half cut the tip off where the stem is and carve out the seeds. I like this style better.

I'm trying to keep them simple. I was just looking for something a little different and thought of this.

Default Jalepeno popper idea?

Cut peppers in half
You can mix seasoning into cream cheese, Tonys, Rotisserie etc
Put cream cheese in pepper
Lay a sliced piece of chicken tenderloin on top
Season chicken with season of choice
Wrap with one slice of bacon(not thick cut)
Put in oven on 350° for 1 hour

I usually put a cookie cooling rack in my pan so the peppers do not sit in the grease

Like this

Kinda similar to what STX_Shooter mentioned above, we started taking 1lb of cooked chorizo and mixing it with 1 block of cream cheese. Cut jalapeno in half, fill with mix then wrap with 1/2 strip of bacon. Takes about 15-20 good sized jalapeno's halved to use all the mix up, but they are awesome. We've been making them at least once a month and have even used the sweet mini bell peppers and they are great oo. Have been sticking them on the smoker instead of fighting the flame ups from the grill and they seem to turn out better for me.

-Chili powder in the cream cheese is good
-portion of meat besides bacon is great
-anything other than plain jalapeño, cream cheese, and bacon is really good to mix into that combination

I made about 6 dozen with goose hearts for Christmas with the whole family. Did this knowing most wouldn’t eat goose hearts and wanted to see how it went not telling them. They were all gone and I don’t have any leftovers for myself.

I love me some home made pimento cheese. So I'm thinking you shred cheddar, pepper jack, add a touch of mayo and garlic, then chop up the canned chipotle peppers and make a mixture out of that to put inside the pepper. And Im hungry again.

Good friend of mine started a pimento cheese company. Absolutely the best I've ever eaten! He gave me a few tubs and we've used them for poppers. They were awesome on the smoker!

Check out his website he is local in Houston.

This is what we do. We use spicy breakfast, italian, venison, andouille, etc... sausage and mix with cream cheese. We were finding just cream cheest to be pretty overpowering and rich so we mixed it up and that is all we do now. I also do them on the smoker as I like the smoke flavor. 30-45 minutes at 350 should be good to make sure the bacon is cooked and not soft.

One time we had a few left over and decided to wrap those in crescent dough and bake them off. That was a good breakfast...

I’ll never cut them in half again. Slit, open like a coin purse, scoop out the insides with a melon baller. I stuffed mine with breakfast sausage mixed with adkin’s and cream cheese.

Never tried Pimento cheese but it sounds good. I do mine like some other have already posted. Cut them in half long ways, stuff with browned breakfast sausage, cream cheese, sour cream, Monterey jack cheese mixture. Wrap with bacon, slap some bbq sauce on em and into the smoker at 250 for 2 hours.

Hey Richie, can you post those pics a little bigger? I can barely see em.




Thanks for all the ideas. I'm just going to go simple and go with the pimento cheese and see what happens. I'm going to put most of my effort Sunday on dinner. Hot wings and onion rings.

I love the pimento cheese idea. Let me know how that comes out. I always like to find a way to switch up my poppers as these are a staple in my house about every other week.

I did “Texas Twinkies” for the super bowl. I cut them like the “coin purse” referenced here. Mix grated pepper jack cheese, cream cheese, and leftover chopped brisket. Add salt, pepper, and cumin. Fill the pepper with the mixture. Bacon wrap. Bake. When they’re done baste them with your favorite BBQ sauce and broil them until it glazes. I made 2 dozen and they were gone in about 6 minutes, lol.

If you want an easy no cook ( kinda no cook, you have to cook bacon) Try Whole pickled Jal cut in half length wise and stuff with cream cheese, bacon crumbles and chopped pecans. Pretty dang good.

I make them 3 different ways except I core out the peppers and stuff them with the mixture then wrap in bacon. For the mixture I use cream cheese and either brisket, pulled pork, or boudin. Grill or in the smoker.

One way we make them is called Armadilla Eggs. Fry bacon and chop into small pieces. Mix bacon with cream cheese. Cut the jalapeños in half long ways and clean out seeds and ribs. Stuff the jalapeño halves with the cream cheese bacon and cook like that. Don’t have to wrap them — the bacon is inside. They are good this way. I like them both ways— bacon on the inside or bacon on the outside. Anything with bacon is good.

I usually chop a lot of white onion in big chunks and mix with cream cheese. Add some seasoning, slap your momma or Cajun seasoning and bacon pieces. Core peppers and stuff with mixture. Wrap and put in smoker for awhile. Til peppers get really soft. Then throw on the grill to crisp up the bacon. I might try to add some corn in a few next time. The onion brings out a lot of flavor. Dip in ranch dressing.
