Grilled Goat Cheese & Chive Jalapeno Poppers

  • Prep Time 15 min
  • Total Time 30
  • Makes: 20 Poppers

Ingredients

  • 10 oz 1 pkg goat cheese 300 g
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives 30 mL
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest 15 mL
  • 1/4 tsp salt 1 mL
  • 10 jalapeño peppers, sliced lengthwise, seeded
  • 2 tbsp panko breadcrumbs 30 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    In large bowl, mix together goat cheese, chives, garlic, lemon zest and salt.

  • Step 2

    Lay the jalapeños, cut-sides up, on a baking sheet. Fill each jalapeño with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the goat cheese mixture. Sprinkle some panko on top of each jalapeño. Pat down slightly to adhere to goat cheese.

  • Step 3

    Place jalapeños, panko-side up, on grill preheated to medium-high. Close lid and grill until slightly charred on the bottom and panko is golden, 8 to 10 min.

Tip

The longer you cook the jalapeños, the less spicy they will be.
