Grilled Jalapeno Poppers
When we were little, my sisters and I had an afternoon snack around 3:00 pm most days. Some of the favorites included carrots and dip, chips and grandma’s salsa, and on the very special occasion, mom might bring home jalapeno poppers in a freezer box from Sam’s club.
Those were the days! We’d carefully read the directions on the box, preheat the oven and then watch through the splattered glass for the cheese to burst through the sides, indicating that the poppers were done. There was a window of good cheese-bursting and “oh no all the cheese has left the popper” bursting, which left a wilted, spicy shell behind.
While I do love a good breaded popper I’m not really a fan of cleaning up after anything breaded so I pulled out some green onions from the fridge, hugged the cream cheese to myself until it became softened, and mixed it with some shredded cheddar, salt, and pepper. Onto the grill they went and lordy were they good! No breading required. Next time you’re firing up the grill give these a whirl. The green onions really add a lot and this simple appetizer can up your dinner game!
