Jay D's Bites: Pimento Cheese Stuffed Jalapeños

by Aimee Tortorich

One of our most popular recipe creations, Jay D’s Pimento Cheese, has spread like wildfire. It’s packed with flavor from Jay D’s Spicy & Sweet Rub and Louisiana Molasses Mustard and uses smoky gouda and cheddar cheese. It’s not an uncommon treat around the office, so naturally I wanted to use it in a recipe. What better way to eat pimento cheese than stuffed in a jalapeño with bacon crumbles?!

Pimento Cheese Stuffed Jalapeños

Yields 4-6 servings

12 jalapeños
6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
¾ cup Jay D’s Pimento Cheese

Preheat oven to 375º.

Slice each jalapeño lengthwise and remove seeds and membrane. Parcook jalapeños cut side down for 5 minutes. Let cool and stuff each jalapeño with 1 Tbsp of pimento cheese. Place jalapeños on sheet pan and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with crumbled bacon.
