West Coast chilli poppers

Recipe from: 30 March 2015
recipes, braai, tapas

Ingredients 4
Time 00:15
  • jalapeño chilies
  • sweet chili low fat cream cheese
  • smoked bacon
  • buthcher's string, to tie



Remove the stems so that you can clean out the potent seeds of the chilies. Make a little hole at the bottom end of each chili to aid filling with the cream cheese. Roll bacon around each prepared chilli and tie neatly.

First, sear the poppers in a pan to make sure the bacon is cooked. Then transfer them to the braai for that authentic smoky flavour.

One tub of cream cheese will easily fill 8 large chilies.

Plate on a cutting board with wax paper and slices of lime.
