Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno's

Last year at  super bowl time I was scrambling for great football watching  food.  My husband is not a sport enthusiast who loves to watch a good game and eat yummy non nutritional food (weird huh). I rarely ever have to entertain this kind of crowd.  But last year my dad and brother were in town and this is there kind of thing.  While searching what I would fix them I found these on Pioneer Woman's site.  She is always great for food like this.

    Now we are in football season again and you might be searching for something to feed your football loving crew too.  These will do the trick.  They are great!!  Creamy, bacony and really not spicy ( I was afraid of that)  you can make them spicy if you want though.  These are so good men will actually walk away from the TV to come into the kitchen to see if there are more,  so make sure you make enough!

  • 20 whole Fresh Jalapenos, 2-3 Inches In Size
  • 2 cubes Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 pound Thin(regular) Bacon, Sliced Into Thirds

Preparation Instructions

If you have them, slip on some latex gloves for the pepper prep… Cut jalapenos in half, length-wise. With a spoon, remove the seeds and white membrane (the source of the heat; leave a little if you like things HOT). Smear softened cream cheese into each jalapeno half with a spoon. Wrap jalapeno with bacon pieces (1/3 slice). Secure by sticking toothpick through the middle. (At this point, you can freeze them, uncooked, in a Ziploc bag for later use).
Bake on a pan with a rack in a 375-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. You don’t want the bacon to shrink so much it starts to the squeeze the jalapeno. If, after 20 minutes, the bacon doesn’t look brown enough, just turn on the broiler for a couple of minutes to finish it off. These are best when the jalapeno still has a bit of bite to it.
You can eat these hot or room temperature.
