Jalapeno Poppers......

An awesome appetizer...

This appetizer is awesome with BBQ's, Mexican food or served at an appetizer party!

 1 dozen jalapeno's, wash and cut in half.
Make sure you don't touch your eyes. You may want to wear gloves and a mask.  
They can be very strong. I use a spoon to clean out the seeds and membranes. then I rinse them again. (*I also put them in the refrigerator to get cold before I cut and clean them.) 

The ingredients are simple:
  • 2 packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package of grated cheddar or mexican cheese
  • 1 pound of Bacon, cut in half
  • 1 dozen Jalapeno's, cut in half and clean
  • Hot Sauce, your choice 
  • garlic pepper
For the cheese mixture:
Blend the cream cheese, grated cheese, season with garlic pepper and hot sauce. Mix well. Then take a spoon and fill the Jalapeno halves. Next wrap one half of a Bacon strip around the middle of the pepper. Then drizzle more hot sauce over over the top!

Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Judge by the bacon being done. Let set at least 5 minutes before serving. Yields 24.
 Enjoy.......They are yummy! xo, NeeCee                 pinecreekstyle.blogspot.com
