It’s the season for entertaining outdoors! The time when we clean up the patio furniture, dust off the trusty barbecue pit, invest in plenty of summer toys for the kids and invite all our friends and family over for some good eats fresh off the grill. For National Cheese Day, which is June 4th, I came up with a special recipe that’s cheesy and delicious, with only a handful of ingredients that are perfect for adding to the grill with your hot dogs, burgers, vegetables and any other summertime favorites. One of my favorite finger foods, bacon wrapped queso stuffed jalapeños!
Queso dip is already a favorite at our parties, and this one just puts it right in the middle of the jalapeños with only a few more additions. It’s crispy and flavorful, with just the right amount of bite from the jalapeños and queso. Your guests will be wowed and it’s so fun to make!
- 8 jalapeños, sliced in half and deseeded
- 1-2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
- 2 ounces VELVEETA® (NOTE: a single serving of VELVEETA® is 1 oz.)
- 4 tablespoons drained canned tomatoes and green chilies
- panko crumbs
- 16 bacon slices
Begin by slicing the jalapeños in half and removing the seeds inside. Spread the cream cheese thinly on the inside of each half. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the tomato mixture with the VELVEETA®, cooking 20-30 seconds at a time and stirring in between.
In honor of National Cheese Day, what’s your favorite cheesy recipe?
