Tailgating With Jet.com!

Isn't my hubby adorable? We love football season here. Although I married a Cowboys fan, I'm a lifelong Giants fan, we do agree we don't like the Redskins. That's about all we agree on when it comes to football though. But, we both love to make game day foods! He is the griller in our house. I can make just about anything in the kitchen but he is the grill master. Here he is with the Coleman Travel Grill that I won from Jet.com! He's already been planning what he's going to cook on it. Him and our brother in law love hot wings. The hotter the better. I swear those two have iron stomachs. My favorite thing Hunny's grilled is probably when we marinate chicken breasts in italian dressing and then he smokes them on the grill.
And this is the other requirement for tailgating! This is a Coleman cooler that I won with the grill. This sucker will be full of beer. How can you watch football without beer? I don't think it can be done.

I thought I would share a simple recipe that can be done either on the grill or in the oven that we have done a few times for game day. It's kind of like jalapeno poppers, but no breading.

12 good size jalapenos (Since you are putting stuff inside of them, they need to be large)
2 cups shredded cheese (I use either sharp cheddar or colby jack. I have used pepper jack too!)
1 pack of bacon bits, the real bacon bits, not the crunchy ones. Or 6 slices of bacon cooked and cut up.

Slice the jalapenos lengthwise and scoop out the insides. Be careful during this step because if you get any of that oil near your face, you will be in pain. Wash your hands well after this step.
Lay jalapenos cut side up on cookie sheet. In bowl, add the cheese and bacon and mix. Then fill the jalapenos with mixture. Then either cook in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is all melted and bubbly or on the grill until melted. Enjoy!
