Stuffed Onions

I was getting things out of the freezer to thaw for the big BBQ this weekend and I kept chasing a pack of chorizo around. Inspiration struck. Stuffed Onions!

I cut the top and bottom off of a couple Vidalias and cut partway into them to separate layers off. I used a smaller piece to make a plug.

Then I layered in some homemade Mexican chorizo, some homemade cheddar jalapeno cream cheese, and then more chorizo.

Wrapped them in bacon and threw them on the gasser for a half hour or so. Took them off the pan to finish the bacon and melt some cheese.

Served them up with a little zucchini. Definitely making these again!

Love the stuffing idea and will try with peppers also. Any chance of sharing your recipe for the Chorizo?
Thanks

Those are looking very good I can just imagine what they would be like on a soft shelled taco and it would be wonderful

The leftover ones will be going on tortillas tonight!
Holy cow those look awesome, what a great idea.
I think I'd chop up the leftovers and stuff them into a poblano pepper and throw them back on the coals until hot. Then I would char up a large flour tortilla add some crema fresca casera, cotija cheese and some Tapatio salsa picante hot sauce and twist up a big'ol burrito/belly bomba.
Heck, I bet you could stuff an old tennis shoe with those things and they would still be awesome.

P.S. your Zucc's grow in funny shapes out there in Mich.:rolleyes::D

The Cheddar, jalapeno cream cheese inspired a like. Your onion balls deserve two likes, but I don't think the site will let me do that. The Zucchini looks good too.
