Campfire Roasted Thai Sweet Chili Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Poppers 1
Hello everyone,

With camping season upon us, you might find yourself reaching for that weenie roasting stick for a late snack by the campfire.

But hasn’t the hot dog thing gotten a little old? Wouldn’t you rather try something new?

Yes, this idea may take a little more work, but TRUST ME, it will be well worth the effort. Your friends by the campfire will love you and they will always speak fondly of the epic night you blew their intoxicated minds and made them ….

CAMPFIRE ROASTED SWEET THAT CHILI BACON WRAPPED JALAPENO POPPERS

Yes it’s, there are a lot of words in that title, but each word is an integral part of the popper. John and I aren’t the first people in the world to make homemade jalapeno poppers and even wrap them in bacon. But it could be that we are the first to ever try roasting them right over the campfire.

The poppers were a group effort on our part, but I have to give John full credit for the idea of roasting the poppers over the campfire. It was an experiment that seemed like it could be a bad idea, but let me tell you, it works like a charm!

TIPS:

  • Be careful! The cheese filling can get very hot!
  • Use the prongs of the roasting stick to secure the bacon around the popper
  • Different jalapenos can have different levels of heat. Remove all the seeds and white flesh inside the jalapeno for a less-spicy version.
  • Alternatively, you can make these on the BBQ. If you do, you might want to consider purchasing a jalapeno roaster for your grill

Poppers PlatedSo next time you find yourself reaching for the hot dogs, STOP, back away and go find the bacon.

Bon appetit,

Julie
