Cooking Instructions


Here’s a game day appetizer with a kick and we’re not talking about field goals. No, these Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos deliver a creamy, crunchy, spicy and flavorful punch with every bite.

Stuffed jalapenos wrapped with bacon are always a favorite and this one has the bonus of being made on a Pit Boss Pellet Grill which of course will give them the added flavor of wood fire.

Note: It is recommended to use Hickory Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.

  1. Start your Grill on ''smoke'' with the lid open until a fire is established in the burn pot (3-7 minutes). Preheat to 300°F.
  2. Begin cutting the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise, removed the seeds along with the center membrane, and set aside.
  3. Next, beat the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, and paprika together until fully combined, add salt to taste, then spoon fill all 24 jalapeno halves evenly.
  4. Wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a half slice of bacon and stick a toothpick in the center to keep the bacon in place.
  5. Place each stuffed pepper on the grill, and grill for about 25 minutes.
  6. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.
