I had a special occasion for a couple of friends. They like ABTs (Atomic Buffalo Treats or words to that effect) but you have to kick it up a bit for special occasions so I put more cheese in them!

I started by cutting 6 medium to large jalapeno peppers in half. I cut off the stem and stripped the white membrane and seeds from the peppers. If you like a hotter appetizer, leave some seeds in.

I mixed cream cheese, cheddar, Parmesan cheese and green onions together.

I stuffed the peppers with the mixture and wrapped each pepper half with 1/2 strip of bacon.

I smoked them at 230 F for 1 1/2 hours. You can also cook them at 350 for 45 minutes in an oven.

Let sit for 10 minutes and serve.

The Verdict

I like ABTs a lot. Adding the Parmesan to the cheese mixture gave them a touch different taste that I liked. By the way, these aren’t very hot. They have just a touch of heat that even She Who Must Be Obeyed likes. Give it a try!

  1. I have made something similar, but with blue cheese instead of parmesan. These are awesome. I like to leave a couple of them booby trapped with seeds and some membrane.

    1. Sounds delicious! I would like to leave some seeds too but She Who Must Be Obeyed would cause serious personal injury if I left it that hot!
