hmmmm, like I've posted before.... I like jalapenos done on the grill with cream cheese and shrimp stuffing. I like shrimp wrapped in bacon. Might as well combine all three! I never thought about wrapping the pepper in bacon before. Maybe that will save my fingers this time
Tried these last night. My filling was cream cheese, onion and garlic,
chopped smoked oysters.
The bacon was a bit chewy... might try pancetta next time.
Made some Coconut Curry chicken and Ginger Sesame Beef satays too.
well there were supposed to be photos, but once again
DC doesn't want my correctly sized jpgs. Oh well, just
use your imagination!
I made this recipe except stuffed the peppers with a mexican blend of cheese. I did not soak them though. My peppers seemed a bit tough - would the soaking soften them a bit? Did anyone else have tough peppers?Vera, I used 1/2 slice of bacon on around each of my peppers so it wrapped once. You might try that.
That's what toothpicks are for
I've done jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and shrimp and the cheese didn't ooze out. I start them out slit up and flip them long enough to get grill marks on the other side. Because I'm not the best at splitting them open and getting the seeds out I usually hold them closed with a wet toothpick. Same thing if I wrap bacon around something. Get the toothpicks out.
