Jalapeno Poppers are always a crowd pleaser, and a staple at the Super Bowl Sunday snacks set up. Paired with buffalo chicken, and bacon…these things are ah-mazing!
1 lb ground chicken breast
1 packet of ranch dressing mix
1/2 c hot wing sauce
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 rib of celery, minced
1 tsp ground black pepper
12 large jalapeno peppers, cored and seeded
6 strips of bacon, each cut in half
In a bowl combine the first six ingredients and mix well.
Remove the tops of the jalapenos and remove the seeds using a corer.
Place jalapenos in the rack. Add half the chicken mixture into a zip top
plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner. Using zip top bag as a
pastry bag squeeze chicken mixture into each jalapeno. Wrap each
jalapeno with 1/2 strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place
the rack of peppers on the grill and cook at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
Check the internal temperature of the chicken with an instant read thermometer,
it should read 165 degrees. Remove from grill and allow to cool.
Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping.
Use the rest of the chicken mixture to make more jalapeno poppers.
Yield: 12 jalapeno poppers, plus more if you need them.
