Hot off the grill, wrapped in bacon and oozing with spice and flavor, fajita poppers from HEB are guarenteed to be a hit during tailgate and Fiesta season…can you get more Southern than that?? Enjoy!




Heat your grill or oven to 350°F. Cut the tops off of the jalapeño peppers and remove seeds and membranes using a sharp pointed paring knife (use gloves to keep excess chili off fingers). Set peppers aside.


Combine the cheese, chopped fajitas, fried onions and cilantro in a food processor or blender bowl. Process the mixture to a chunky texture.


Hand stuff each prepared jalapeño with the mixture. Wrap 1/4 strip of bacon across the top and pierce with a toothpick to secure. Insert the jalapeños into the jalapeño grill holders.


For Oven Method: Place the Happy Jalapeño Grill on a baking sheet to collect the bacon drippings. For Grill Method: Place the Happy Jalapeño Grill opposite the charcoals (indirect grilling). Bake or grill the jalapeños for 35 to 40 minutes.
