  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins
  • Yields: 6 stuffed peppers

Ingredients

6 slices par-cooked bacon

3 large poblano peppers

1 pound lump crab meat

1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/3 cup good quality mayonnaise

1/2 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella

1 tablespoon olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

6 large toothpicks

Directions

1Par cook the bacon about half way and set aside. Cut each poblano pepper in half, remove and discard the seeds. Brush each pepper inside and out with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

2In a large bowl combine the crab, lemon pepper, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, mayonnaise and mozzarella. Do not over mix, the filling should be firm but not too thick. Keep in mind as the filling heats up the cheese will begin to melt and help the ingredients bind together further.

3Stuff each pepper with an equal amount of the filling and wrap each pepper with one piece of bacon. Secure the bacon with a toothpick. Preheat grill to medium or 450F

4Place the stuffed peppers, skin side down, on your preheated GrillGrates and close the lid. Allow the peppers to grill for 10 minutes or so before you lift and twist 45 degrees. This allows the pepper and filling to cook evenly.Close the grill lid and allow to cook for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the cheese in the filling begins to melt. Remove from grill and serve immediately. Lorraine served hers with a room temp Jersey tomato garden salsa and a dollop of sour cream. Stay Cool my friends, it’s hot out there!
