Let's get grilling

1 Combine cream cheese, Rotel, salt, pepper to taste.
2 Fill jalapeños with cream cheese mixture.
3 Form small log with ground sausage, placing it onto cream cheese mixture.
4 Place bacon strip on cutting board and press/stretch out gently with hands. (Thinning out bacon will ensure a crispy grilled product and make bacon go further. Depending on size of jalapeños you may only use 1/2 a strip per popper.
5 Wrap jalapeños with bacon, making sure your bacon strip ends on the bottom (jalapeño side).
6 Grill over your favorite Kingsford® flavor briquet until bacon is crispy and meat is cooked through. Once you place your jalapeño poppers (jalapeño side down) on grill, LEAVE IT ALONE until your bacon gets a solid seal. Rotating your poppers too early will make your bacon come apart. If you create a two-zone fire (placing Kingsford® briquets to one side of your grill) you can control your cooking temperature. Shifting poppers around (not turning over) as needed to ensure bacon is crisping up evenly.
Cooking for 6 people
