Smoked Jalepeno Poppers



Hubsters and I recently tried Smoked Jalapeno Poppers at our local farmers market, 3 of the little suckers for five bucks! Expensive, but soo smoky and delightful, worth every penny!

We were smoking a Prime Rib this weekend and I wanted to give these a whirl, they are very easy and the taste is amazing, truly. If you don't have a smoker you can get directions for doing it on your charcoal grill here.

12 Jalapenos seeded and de-stemmed
1/4 lb Mexican Chorizo Sausage, casings removed
1 package cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Cook the chorizo until done, remove from the pan and drain. Mix all the remaining ingredients together and pipe into your prepared Jalapenos. Follow the directions above for your charcoal grill and if you have a smoker, smoke em!

I can only imagine the yummy noises I would make while devouring these! I've never had them smoked, plus I've never had them with chorizo as part of the filling. Man, I wish I was your neighbor! These are totally, totally, totally AWESOME! :-)
