Jalepeno Poppers and Zinna's "Secret" Seasoning

I am richly blessed by good friends who enjoy genuinely looking out for one another.
I wanted to thank T-ray for the assortment of peppers that she recently gave me.

I had thoughts of making some pickled peppers with them.

or possibly using this recipe to enjoy while watching the college ballgames (Roll Tide!):

Grilled Jalapeno Poppers

12 large jalapeno peppers
1 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese (or you could use cream cheese)
6 thick slices bacon
CAUTION: Jalapenos can be very hot. Use caution and wear rubber gloves if you have skin sensitivity. Keep hands away from face and eyes. Wash hands thoroughly with warm water and soap when finished handling peppers.
Slice peppers from stem to tip on 1 side. Carefully squeeze ends of pepper (like a change purse) and scoop out seeds and veins with a small spoon. Stuff each pepper with shredded cheese. Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap each pepper with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Preheat grill. Grill peppers 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until bacon is cooked, but not crisp.
Remove from grill and serve while hot.
I shared a few of the peppers with my friend Zinnia,Warrior Princess. Zinnia was kind enough to give me a bottle of her "secret seasoning". "It's really not a secret", says Zinnia. Actually all it is, is salt, and red pepper mixed together. Zinnia loves the seasoning on fresh cut cumbers with lemon juice, although she said it is good on almost everything.
When this post orginally ran on my blog, Tales from Bloggeritaville, I included within the post an aware to some of my sista bloggers. An award given to me by Terri of Bama Bargains that I passed along to others. The award was called, "Twisted Sister". Thus the comments to this post.


Terri said...

You make me laugh, we dance like twisted pretzels and most of all I adore you! That's why I bestowed you.

It's called "twisted sister" because it's from 'twisted lisa'.

I am TWISTED and I am proud.

And I can do the twist too with added OOMPAH because of the sheer size of what is twisting. But I digress....

THANK YOU for awarding me for behavior that my mother has been battling for years. FINALLY someone understands and appreciates that side of me!

I like the twisted side of you too!!

Now let's paint our faces, put on our gnarly duds, and sing "i wanna rock".... and scare small children in the process.
