Grilled Pepper Poppers

Grilled Poppers
(My son Mathieu (15) took this picture)

Crowd-pleasing Jalapeno Poppers stuffed with a blend of cream cheese and goat cheese. Make this appetizer for Grey Cup, Super Bowl, Holidays, Christmas, Thanksgiving!

I enjoyed the delicious creamy texture of the filling. Next time I might try this filling with the small sweet peppers that you can find in different colors at your grocery store. Also it would be nice to serve them with crumbled bacon.

Try the filling as a dip for veggies or tortilla chips, is so yum!

  2. These sound amazing Helene. When I was in San Francisco I found a type of pepper called Pimentos de Padron that would be the Russian Roulette of spicy peppers..which means that most often they are mild but sometimes you get a spicy one...perfect for us!!!!!
