Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

    6 Ė 10 fresh jalapenos
    Package of bacon (the thin variety works best)
    1 pkg. cream cheese (250 gm.)
    Tony Chachereís Original Creole Seasoning
    1 each pepper of another type (optional)

    1. Place cream cheese in a bowl; allow to come up to room temp (soft enough to work it).

    2. Shake Tonyís on the cream cheese, mash/knead it in with a fork. This part is subjective to the taster. I usually shake/mix about three times to get a nice reddish tint throughout the mixture.

    3. This next part is also subjective to the taster. If you want a hotter and a nice blend of flavors, cut another type of pepper, remove the seeds, and dice very finely. Mix in the desired amount into your cream cheese mixture.
    a. I have tried Serrano, habanero (orange, white Peruvian, chocolate), Jamaican, chocolate mulato. It doesnít have to be a hot pepper, just my personal preference.
    b. You could also finely diced meat of any kind. Shrimp, crab, chicken. sausage, etc. It would be advisable to cook any meat being added to the inside at least ĺ of the way prior to mixing to ensure it is not raw once the peppers are done. It does not take them long to cook and the inside temp may not have sustained a high enough temp long enough to cook meats like chicken.

    4. Place bowl in freezer for quick chill to thicken the mixture. It is easier to spread into the peppers.

    5. Cut japs in half, remove seeds.

    6. Once the mixture is thick, spread into the jap halves.

    7. Dependent on the size of the bacon, you may be able to cut the bacon in half and wrap the stuff pepper, secure with a toothpick run through the pepper. Sprinkle pepper with Tonyís or, salt and pepper, garlic powder or, whatever catches your fancy. Iíve been cooking these for years and Iím still playing with variations.

    8. How to cook is your option. Pan in WFO, open grill etc. For us, we cook directly over a wood fired pit using mesquite. Once the bacon is to the degree of your liking, itís ready. We like blacken edges ourselves.


    Iíll post some pictures next time we grill bunch.

    Re: Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

    I am trying something like this, this weekend but the chillies are just too hot a limey! Tony's seasoning too for my other half, is too hot so we will use Romana peppers but the rest of the recipe. I will put some pictures up.
    Where can I find logs? I need more!
    Finishing the WFO will come after the barn is completed http://flinthousebarn.co.uk/

      Re: Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

      We've done a similar thing called "Flaming buffalo turds". We cut the cap off the jalapeno, clean out the seeds & veins and then stuff the cavity with cream cheese. Next you wrap the stuffed pepper with a strip of bacon and secure it with a couple toothpicks. Roll them in brown sugar and bake in WFO until bacon browns. We like to bake them on a cooling rack in a sheet pan so the bacon grease drips off into the pan. Although lots of people liked them, most didn't like the occasional "fire-breather" so we came up with an alternate version.

      Use the small sweet peppers widely available now. Crisp up some bacon and chunk it up. Split them lengthwise & clean, then put in your favorite hot pepper cheese. Sprinkle the bacon on top of the cheese and bake until the cheese melts. Bring it out and let it cool a bit. Lastly, put a dab of hot pepper jelly on each one and serve. We've dubbed these Smoldering Buffalo Farts and since we can make them whatever heat level we like...they've become our standard summer bites.
