Picadillo Poppers



  1. For filling, in a large skillet cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat until meat is brown and onion is tender, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat. Stir in cooked rice, the 1 cup cheese, raisins, olives, and sherry. Set aside.
  2. Cut a lengthwise slit in one side of each jalapeno pepper to create a pocket, being careful not to cut the pepper in half. Cut a very small crosswise slit on both ends of the long slit, making an I-shape opening. Leave stem intact and use a small spoon to remove seeds and scrape out membranes. Spoon filling into peppers.
  3. Place filled peppers, slit sides up, in a greased grill basket or on a greased vegetable grilling pan. For a charcoal grill, grill peppers in basket on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium coals for 8 to 12 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender and filling is heated through. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place peppers in basket on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
  4. If desired, sprinkle grilled peppers with additional cheese.

From the Test Kitchen

Broiling Directions:

Preheat broiler. Prepare as directed through Step 2. Place filled peppers, slit sides up, on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 6 to 7 inches from the heat about 5 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender and filling is heated through. If desired, sprinkle with additional cheese.


Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
