If you don’t like hot, leave out the jalapenos or skimp a bit.  Fresh jalapenos are preferred over the canned or pickled ones traditionally used with nachos.  They are milder and prettier too.

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken tenders, flattened and cut in two
  • 3-ounce package softened cream cheese
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half

Directions

  1. Dab 1/2 teaspoon (more or less) of cream cheese on top of each chicken tender. Sprinkle a scant 1/4 teaspoon of peppers over cream cheese. Fold or roll chicken to enclose cream cheese mixture. Wrap each roll with one piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  2. Grill until bacon is brown and crispy on both sides.

A really yummy yet simple recipe.  Our favorite kind.

A great weekend to eat outdoors...Enjoy this while you still can.
