8 fresh jalapenos (2-3” size)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
6 slices bacon
Heat oven to 375* and place a wire rack on a cookie sheet or on broiler pan (so the bacon grease can drain while they cook). Cut stems from jalapenos and slice lengthwise. Use a spoon to scrape out all seeds and membrane (careful not to inhale too much). Spoon cream cheese into each half, it doesn’t have to be perfect, you won’t need all of it. Cut bacon into thirds and wrap around jalapenos, securing with a toothpick. Bake 15-20 minutes or until bacon is cooked to your liking.
My advice is to make more of these than you think you’ll need.. they are addictive! Drew and I can eat all 16 halves in no time. If you’re really adventurous, leave some of the seeds in to make em’ spicy! Enjoy!
