A vegetarian popper that’s the perfect mix of savory and sweet!


6 large jalapeños, halved and seeded
6 dates, pitted and chopped
4 ounces blue cheese


  1. Half your jalapeños but leave the stems on. Scrape out seeds.
  2. In a small bowl stir together minced dates with blue cheese.
  3. Stuff cheese and date mixture into the jalapeños.
  4. Grill jalapeños for 6-8 minutes over medium heat until they have grill marks, the peppers are tender with a little snap to them, and the cheese is melted.
  5. Remove peppers and let them cool for 5 minutes before eating.
