In celebration of the Cinco de Mayo holiday, here’s a fun recipe to try:
- 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 2-inch x 1/2-inch x 1/4-inch strips
- 15 jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
- 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup real bacon bits
- Place a cheese strip in each pepper half; sprinkle with bread crumbs and bacon.
- Grill peppers, covered, over medium-hot heat for 4-6 minutes or until peppers are tender and cheese is melted. Serve warm. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
