Grilled Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

grilled stuffed jalapenos

After a month of low carb meals I was running out of options. Our daily feast of chicken and broccoli was getting a little dull. I still wanted to keep the meal low carb, but I didn’t want to sacrifice flavor.

Then I started dreaming about this place in down town Atlanta that makes cream cheese, cheddar, smoked pork fried jalapeno bites. Instead of pork I subbed mushrooms and I grilled everything since I am trying not to eat fried. image2 (42)

These poppers will melt in your mouth. So full of cheesiness and I added some blackening seasoning to kick up the flavor.

When you prep your jalapenos I highly recommend removing all seeds and ribbing. I love my food spicy, but the blackening seasoning is already going to up the heat level.
