Jalapeno Rat Tails..

We got this recipe from a family member around Christmas, but finally got around to giving it a try..

Jalapeno Rat Tails..
(quite a name!)

  • Jalapeno's
  • Sausage
  • Cream Cheese
  • Bacon

We used 10 Jalapeno's, 1 lb. package of sausage, 1 pkg. cream cheese, and some bacon.

These are super simple to make..

Cook the sausage (drain if you'd like),  add the cream cheese to it and mix it up.
While the sausage is cooking prepare your jalapeno's for stuffing..  wash them, then cut a slit near top (leave the tops/stems on) and a slit down it.. (a T shape) and clean out the insides (seeds/veins)
which is what makes them hot!
I highly recommend using a spoon or something for cleaning them out.. :0)

Stuff with the sausage/cream cheese mixture, wrap in bacon.. (can use a toothpick to secure)

Then cook over lower heat for around 45 minutes to an hour on your grill.. 
(long enough to cook the bacon and soften the jalapeno)

( However, we used a broil pan and baked them at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes,
 then we lowered the heat to 325 degrees and cooked them for 45 minutes)

Make sure you remove the toothpick..
and don't eat the stem/top part.. :0)

The Results.. Yep, they are really good!
