Smoked Jalapeno Poppers
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Servings: 20 jalapeno poppers
- 10 jalapeno peppers large
- 8 Tbsp cream cheese
- 20 slices bacon
- 1/2 lb cheddar cheese cut in pepper long sticks
- 2 cups turkey stuffing
Cut jalapeno peppers in half, spooning out the white flesh and seeds. Do not remove stems. Soak in water for 30 minutes to 1 hour for a mildly hot taste.
Meanwhile prepare some turkey stuffing. Add some caramelized onions and mushrooms to it for more flavor. Mix all together.
Stuff jalapeno halves with a smidgen of cream cheese, about 1 tsp per one pepper half, followed by turkey stuffing and cheddar sticks. Wrap one bacon slice around each. You may want to secure the bacon with a tooth pick.
Place on a smoker preheated to 225F-250F and smoke for about 1.5 - 2 hours. Jalapeno poppers are done when they acquire rich maroon/brown/burgundy color (depends on the wood you are using for smoking).
