Grilled stuffed jalapeños will end your summer with some heat!
So my hubby loves jalapeño poppers and I think they are awesome and taste all kinds of delicioso, but I don't love that for the most part they are deep fried. Because of that, I tend to stay away from them and I have not ever once made them at home because then I might eat them all and feel all kinds of guilt afterwards. Pues, guess what? Now, I can make them at home and eat them too because I found an easy and fabulous recipe for grilled stuffed jalapeños.
Sure they still have some naughty cheesy goodness in them and a surprise helping of crispy bacon, because I'm not trying to be a saint or anything, but now that I know I can lighten them up by not battering them or frying them, I can't wait to pop these baby's on the grill and then pop them in my boca!
