Super bowl Recipe: Grilled Jalapeno Poppers

I received a promotional item in exchange for this review and super bowl recipe but all the opinions are 100% our own.

Did you know that the second biggest food day is the Superbowl? It makes sense since for people like me I just like to watch the commercials and eat great food. Superbowl recipes are all about the presentation as well. Stores are filled with football napkins, plates etc. I am thrilled to be sharing my experience making grilled Jalapeno Poppers on my new Armetale football griller pan.grilled-jalapeno-poppers


I have a grill pan but the Armetale football griller pan is so versatile and can go from Grill & Serve in the same piece. Perfect for prep; grill cooking, stove top cooking and oven cooking.


  •  Keeps hot foods hot longer and cold foods cold longer
  • Lifetime Warranty against breakage
  • Easy clean up; does not require polishing
  • Durable, won’t crack, chip or dent, rust or tarnish
  • Not microwave or dishwasher safe  

Now for this delicious and make ahead Superbowl recipe. Be sure to have a pair of plastic gloves on when working with any hot pepper. And do not touch your face at all during the prep, you will regret it!

grilled-jalapeno poppers

Cut a slit into  each of your jalapenos, reserving the think slices for the mixture. ( you can omit this part if you want to keep it a little less spicy.)


Mix your cheeses and spices together, having room temperature cream cheese will make this process so much easier.

Load up your Jalapenos. We might have gone over board as they oozed out during cooking but they still tasted amazing.


Wrap them in bacon, everything tastes better with bacon.


Then you can wrap them up and wait for game time to grill or place it directly on your preheated grill pan and let the magic begin.


You can do this in the oven as well.


Grilled Jalapeno Poppers

Grilled Jalapeno Poppers

Yield: 16 poppers
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

a spicy game day appetizer to get a kick start


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temp.
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 16 whole jalapeno peppers with stems
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil your grill pan. Let it warm up while you prepare the jalapenos.
  2. 2. Mix together the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Cheddar cheese in a bowl until the mixture is thoroughly blended.
  3. 3. Using rubber gloves ideally, lay a jalapeno pepper onto a work surface, and cut a lengthwise sliver from the side of the pepper, exposing the seeds and white membrane. With the handle of a teaspoon, scrape out the seeds and membrane, leaving the hollow pepper. Repeat for the rest of the peppers. Chop up the pepper slices, and mix into the cheese stuffing. Stuff each pepper with cheese mixture, and wrap each stuffed pepper in a half bacon slice. Secure with toothpicks.
  4. 4. Grill the poppers on a less-hot part of the grill until the peppers are hot and juicy and the bacon is browned, 30 to 40 minutes. Be sure to turn them every 10 mins or so.
