SIMPLE Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

SIMPLE Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno poppers have a reputation of being hot.  This simply is not true if you follow our advice.  Jalapenos get their heat from the ribs and seeds, so by simply removing them you will be left with a pepper that is no hotter than a green pepper.

After slicing the jalapeno in half remove the entire rib (the thin whitish part that runs the length of the jalapeno) and the seeds.  Rinse the jalapenos under cool water before cooking and pat dry before stuffing and wrapping them.  Wearing disposable gloves is also a good idea.  If you are not wearing gloves, be sure to thoroughly wash your hands after and avoid touching your face.

 

Once the jalapenos are dried, spoon some cream cheese into each half and wrap in bacon.   Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F until the bacon is crispy and the cheese is melted.
