Ingredients

Jalapeno Popper Mixture:

  • 1 block Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 8 oz Ground Beef
  • 6 Bacon Slices cooked
  • 1 medium Jalapeño diced
  • 2 tbsp Red Onion diced
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder

Egg Rolls:

  • 6-8 Egg Roll Wrappers
  • ½ cup Kroger BBQ Sauce
  • ½ cup Sweet Chili Sauce
  • Frying Oil

Instructions

  • Preheat your grill to 350F for direct cooking.
  • Add a cold skillet to the grill with your bacon slices. Cook until the bacon is golden brown and crispy (about 8-10 minutes). Make sure to flip half way through.
  • Once the bacon is done, pull it off and let cool for 10 minutes. Once cool, chop up the bacon and set to the side.
  • Add your ground beef to the hot skillet with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir frequently and cook until the beef is fully done with no pink (about 6-8 minutes).
  • Pull the beef off the skillet and place into a bowl. Place the bowl into the fridge to completely cool for 15 minutes.
  • In a bowl, add your cream cheese, cheddar cheese, ground beef, chopped bacon, diced jalapenos and diced red onions. Mix thoroughly.
  • Lay out an egg roll wrapper and place a scoop of the jalapeno popper mixture in the center. Wet the outer edges of the wrapper with water, then roll and fold into an egg roll.
  • Preheat some frying oil to 400F and add your egg rolls to cook for 1-2 minutes per side. Once golden brown and crispy, pull off and let cool.
  • Serve with Kroger BBQ Sauce, Sweet Chili Sauce or the mixture of the two. Enjoy!

Notes

How to Tell If the Hot Oil Is at Temperature in a Cast Iron Pan?
If you don't have a thermometer handy, you can employ the breadcrumb test: drop a small piece into the oil, and if it browns in about 60 seconds, the oil is likely ready. Additionally, a wooden chopstick or the end of a wooden spoon inserted into the oil will create bubbles around it when the oil is sufficiently hot. Always exercise caution and adhere to safety measures when working with hot oil and cast iron pans!
