Flavorful jalapeno peppers, stuffed with seasoned meat, wrapped in bacon, grilled and glazed with maple. You will seriously not be able to stop eating these!
It all starts with some seasoned ground beef.
Then you halve and de-seed a bunch of jalapeno peppers.
The peppers are then stuffed with the seasoned ground beef, wrapped in bacon and secured with a wooden pick.
And then it is time to fire up the grill.
In the last few minutes on the grill, you brush these little bundles with some maple syrup for good measure. HEAVEN.
I made these with jalapeno peppers that I grew in my garden. Let me tell you…that next year I will be growing even more peppers than I did this year, just so I can make more of these. A whole lot more!
Psst…. you might also like to know that these poppers are also low-carb and paleo friendly! Now you really have no excuse not to make these!
