I usually make these for family parties during the summer, and they are always a hit. Never once had leftover ABT's, which it a pretty good sign if you ask me. This batch was from a party on the 6th of July, since the 4th was cloudy and damp here in NYC
Pretty standard setup. Cream cheese, whatever shredded cheese I have on hand, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Stuff it all into the jalapeno halves and wrap 'em up in bacon. I throw them on the grill until the skin begins to char and the bacon firms up. Haven't tried smoking them yet, but I'm in no rush since they're so good off the grill!
