Grilled Jalapeno Poppers

Grilled Jalapeno Poppers
We had these super easy and super delicious poppers today for our 4th of July cookout.

5 jalapeno peppers

Cut peppers lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Fill with cream cheese and wrap in bacon. Put on rack on grill pan and grill until bacon is cooked and slightly crisp. These things are addictive!
