Jalapeno Popper Dog


Jalapenos seem to be monstrous at the grocery store compared to their size from a few years back. I used this large size to my advantage, and was able to case a whole hot dog and some cheese inside a couple of cut jalapenos. The fun thing about this recipe is that you could make a whole dozen of them easily, pop em into a zip lock, and head out to your nearest B.Y.O.M. party (Bring Your Own Meat), camp fire, or other communal grilling situation.

Make sure you grab the biggest jalapenos you can fine. Get extra just in case.

Fist cut your dogs in half and put some cheese slices in the center.

Hollow out the jalapenos and you're ready to go.

It wasn't too hard to squeeze the dog in there.

I lost some of the cheese while I was grilling this thing, but if I was paying attention and flipping it better, I wouldn't have lost as much.

You have to cook it longer to make sure the pepper is blackened and tender not crunchy. If you succeed you end up with a super tasty twist on two summer classics!

Jalapenos can vary on spice level, but if you get all the seeds out these shouldn't be too bad to eat.


Wow; seriously wow. I marvel at your inventiveness.

Oh my sweet Lord, that must be one of the most irresistible foods I've ever seen!

You, sir, are a genius!

My mom serves something like this at the bar she owns, but they wrap it in Bacon and batter, then deep fry it. It's on the menu as "the heart attack". I've never had it (because I value the ability for blood to flow freely through my veins), but it looks awesome.

What? Grilled not fried??

This is totally Reddit worthy. Amazing. My brother would absolutely drool over the idea of cheese + jalapeno + hotdogs.

this just blew my mind

wow - this is awesome. Such a unique take on a jalapeno popper!! LOVE IT!

Now this is cool. I've got my nieces coming up for vacation in a couple weeks and promised them a weenie roast. Now I can make it interesting for us adults!

I will be trying these this weekend. I will tweet u my pics.

Much to my roommates delight, I tried this recipe yesterday so I could bring it to a bbq. I say to their delight because they thought it was the most amusing thing in the world seeing me try to stuff those hot dogs in the peppers.


after some effort and patience, voila!

AMAZING. such a hit, everyone loved them.
