Don't let the name fool you, even though Jalapeno peppers are not common except in the larger cities, just use the large green chilies available in all markets. And you can make the Chorizo yourself as well. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Ingredients
Servings: poppers
Instructions
  1. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove stems and seeds.
  2. Remove the casings from chorizo links and crumble up a bit, if using patties, just crumble those up a bit. Brown chorizo in a skillet over medium-high heat, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well and place into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the rest of the except the peppers and bacon, mix together and press mixture into the pepper halves, mounded as well. Wrap each pepper half with a strip of bacon.
  4. Fire up your grill, gas or charcoal (charcoal preferred) and grill, covered until the bacon is cooked, about 10 minutes or so, I will update this when I prepare these.
Recipe Notes

I cannot buy chorizo premade so I have to make myself, figure about 50 Baht for two links or patties. For the cheese, figure about 180 Baht for the Gouda or Edam, and for Cream cheese figure 60 Baht for half a standard package. The total cost for 24 poppers would be about $8.53 or about 36 cents per popper. This would be a good item for a get together with family and friends.

Shortcut: Chorizo.

Recipe Notes

The Cheddar cheese would run about 180 Baht, the Colby or Edam, another 90, the condensed soup about 90 Baht, same for making yourself but you will know what is in it. For 10 servings, this is about $1.06 per serving.
