NUTAPENOS A game day Must!!! Patti’s best girlfriend, Peggy just loves our different stuffed jalapenos, especially our “rattlesnake eggs” and “armadillo eggs”. Over lunch last week she suggested, knowing how much Ken loves peanut butter, to just stuff some in a jalapeno. So, Nutapenos were born and it’s easier to say than peanut butter poppers. Wrapped with Zaycon Fresh bacon they made a fun and tasty appetizer.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Directions: NUTAPENOS

Cut a slit down the length of pepper with a paring knife. Be careful not to cut all the way through. Clean the seeds and membrane out of the pepper, Patti is using an iced tea spoon here. If you want your peppers hotter just leave some of the seeds in.

Now you’re ready to the stuff the pepper with as much peanut butter as you like. Wrap stuffed pepper with a Zaycon Fresh bacon slice. Secure bacon with a toothpick. Onto the Char Griller Kamado 10 minutes @ 400* (205c) or until bacon is crisp.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
Ken & Patti
