Units of Measurement:
40 jalapeño peppers
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 Cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 Teaspoon Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub
2 Tablespoon sour cream
1 (14 oz) package mini cocktail sausages
20 Slices of Smoked Bacon, Cut in Half


  • 1

    Wash and dry the peppers. With a paring knife, remove the stems. Using the same knife or a small metal spoon, carefully scrape the seeds and ribs out of each pepper. Set aside.

  • 2

    In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub, and the sour cream and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a sturdy, resealable plastic bag and trim 1/2-inch off one of the lower corners with scissors.

  • 3

    Squeeze the cream cheese mixture into each pepper, filling each a little over the halfway point.

  • 4

    Stuff one sausage into each pepper. Wrap the outside of each with a piece of bacon, securing with 1-2 toothpicks. Place the stuffed peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet.

  • 5

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 180˚F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke, if available.
