My friend George served these jalapeno poppers to me several years ago and I fell in love with them. They are the perfect appetizer to serve for a laid back evening – and people go crazy for them (people generally go crazy for anything wrapped in bacon)! I made them for the first time last year and nearly killed myself. Instead of cutting them in half and removing the seeds, I thought that I need to keep the pepper whole and dig the seeds out through a tiny slice in the pepper. Do not try this! I was in complete tears, coughing and sneezing and told myself I would never make them again. George got a big kick out of my story and corrected the recipe making it about 100 times easier. And, you can actually save money and time by purchasing less peppers and only seeding half!
- 15 jalapenos
- 1 package cream cheese
- 1 package bacon
Assembly: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut jalapenos in half and remove seeds membrane (the really hot parts). Stuff with about a tablespoon of cream cheese and wrap with a half piece of bacon. Roast for about an hour or until bacon is crispy and pepper is roasted.
Mike and I made these last night with some friends and they were so good! The recipe made 30 and we thought that it was going to be too much for 5 people but we ate all of them! haha. love!
