Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Alternatively, you can grill the jalapeno poppers.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese and mash with a fork to make it fluffier. Add the mozzarella, cherries, chipotles in adobo, and salt and stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. Chop stems off jalapenos. Cut in half long ways and use a small spoon to scoop out flesh and seeds.
  4. Fill the halved jalapenos with the cream cheese mixture. Don’t fill too full or they’ll overflow when cooking.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until tops are starting to brown. If grilling, grill over medium high heat until tops are starting to brown.
  6. Top with crumbled bacon and serve.
