Texan Jalapeño Poppers with Bacon, Brisket, Cream Cheese, & BBQ Sauce 🥓 🌶
12 whole jalapeños
15 T. cream cheese
1½ lbs. marbled brisket
12 thick-cut strips bacon
2 T. kosher salt 2 T.
6 oz. BBQ Sweet Glaze
Slice one side of each jalapeño from stem to tip.
(We recommend these jalapeños)
Slice across the stem end; remove seeds and membranes.
Place jalapeños on baking sheet; bake at 300ºF for 10 minutes. Remove from oven; place jalapeños in bowl of ice water to extract additional seed oil.
Cover each jalapeño's inside bottom with approximately 1 T. cream cheese; add 2 oz. brisket.
Close pepper around stuffing. Wrap with bacon; add pinch salt and pepper.
Place peppers on baking sheet; bake at 350ºF for about 30 minutes.
Remove; apply approximately 1 T. glaze to each.
Optional: Follow our Brisket Recipe and add bits to the final product. You can also Grill the Jalapeño Poppers as well.
