Grilled Jalapeño Popper Recipe

Servings: 8 whole peppers, 16 halves
Prep time: About 12 minutes
Cook time: About 6-7 minutes

SITE NOTE: If jalapenos are too hot for you (I’m with you!) you can substitute with regular bell peppers or banana pepeprs!

What You’ll Need:

How to Make Them:

  1. Spray grill (or grill pan if doing this indoors) with cooking spray.
  2. REMOVE all seeds from jalapenos by rinsing them off. Be sure to wear gloves when handling peppers so your hands don’t burn (which I did not). Arrange body side up (so you can fill them) on the grill pan.
  3. Mix together the cheeses, sage and salt and pepper. Using a small spoon, fill each pepper with cheese. Top with roasted red pepper and chives. Add a dash more of salt and pepper.
  4. Grill (or broil) for 5-7 minutes, until cheese is slightly browned and peppers are softened.
  5. Eat (if you dare) and enjoy! Just make sure you have a glass of water/milk beside you!
