Grilling jalapenos caramelizes their tender skin while bringing out their natural sweetness, a nice counter to their distinctive heat. Stuffing them with a honey laced cream cheese and bacon combination makes them addictive bites of balanced flavor.


  • 12 large red or green jalapenos
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked until crisp, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Heat grill to medium high.
  2. Slice jalapenos in half length-wise and remove seeds and membranes. Set aside.
  3. Combine cream cheese, bacon and honey in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pipe or spoon cream cheese mixture into jalapeno half.
  4. Set jalapenos on a grill basket and place on the grill, cheese side up. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes or until peppers are tender and cheese is hot. Serve warm.
