1 lb beef chuck about 20% fat
10 jalapeno peppers average size
5 bacon slices
1 tsp kosher salt heaping
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup diced sharp cheddar
Fry or bake bacon slices until crispy. Let cool down, blot with paper towels and chop coarsely.
Coarsely grind beef chuck, add the bacon bits, salt, pepper and diced cheddar. Mix well.
Cut the jalapeno peppers in half, remove seeds and membranes.
Stuff the peppers with the meat mix.
Air fry at 375F for 12-16 minutes, depending on how big the peppers are, how crowded your air fryer is, and how your air fryer cooks. When making your first batch, check for doneness at around 9-10 minutes and go from there.
