BBQ Jalapeño Poppers
Jalapeños, cream cheese, and bacon. If any list of ingredients could say “game day,” it would be these. The bubbling cheese, zesty peppers, and savory bacon and wrapped in a caramelized layer of your favorite flavor of our Bar-B-Q sauce, making these poppers the perfect combo of savory and sweet. If any poppers survive after the final score is called, try them cold from the fridge the next morning. We also love these poppers on grilled-cheese sandwiches and burgers.
