Tailgating season is always a fun and memorable time of year. Here is a fun frugal, and festive recipe from eMeals founder and mother of four, Jane DeLaney.
Bacon Jalapeno Sliders
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
¼ c chopped green onions
2 tablespoons bacon bits
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt to taste
14 jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
Texas hot sauce, optional
Preheat grill to medium-high.
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions, bacon bits, lime juice, garlic, and salt to taste.
Fill pepper halves evenly with cheese mixture.
Place in a container for easy transport.
When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium-high.
Place a sheet of aluminum foil onto grill rack, and carefully place peppers on foil, being sure they don’t fall between grates.
Cover and grill 8 to 10 minutes, or until the peppers begin to char and the cheese is melted.
- Garnish with a dash of Texas hot sauce if desired.
