Beer Cheese Jalapeño Poppers
Jalapeño poppers are classic gameday food, especially if you love the heat. Give them a twist and stuff them with beer cheese and bacon, and you have the perfect appetizer to throw on the grill.
Test Kitchen Tip
Poppers can be filled up to a day ahead, and stored in the refrigerator.
Heat beer in a saucepan over medium-high to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer beer until reduced to ¼ cup.
Preheat grill to medium. Brush grill grate with oil.
Combine reduced beer, cream cheese, Cheddar, scallions, and garlic for the filling.
Stuff jalapeño halves with 1½– 2 tsp. filling; sprinkle with bacon. Grill poppers until filling is bubbly and jalapeños are charred, about 10 minutes.
