Comfy In The Kitchen: Stuffed Jalapeno Appetizers - 3 Ingredients!

When I was visiting “The Taste of Hudson” a few weekends ago with friends, one of our friend’s Andy ordered these at the Hudson’s restaurant booth. He and my husband went crazy over them. I curiously looked at his “boat cup” filled with these things that I have never seen before and thought “These don’t seem so hard to make!” Hmmm…so here we are, a delicious 3 -ingredient recipe that will be perfect to serve your guests! Who would have thought it could be this easy!?

Start out with a package of bacon, a dozen jalapenos, and 1-2 bricks of cream cheese

Slice jalapeno in half length wise

Scoop out the inside and seeds with a serrated spoon (or something of the like) In this step you can choose how much heat you like in your jalps..the more seeds you leave in the hotter it will be, if you like a mild flavor than scoop out all seeds. I like to leave a few in.

Slice your bacon in half.Now you have your hollowed Jalps, your brick of cream cheese, sliced bacon and your tooth picks in the background

Simply fill the Jalp with cream cheese to the top

Wrap bacon around and fasten with a party pick

Place your Jalps on anything that will allow bacon grease to drain (broiler pan would work great here)

I used a baking rack and placed a pan at bottom to collect drippings. Bake at 425 for about 15 mins or until your bacon is done. You will be AMAZED how delicious this recipe is!

Stuffed Jalapeno Appetizers
12 Jalapenos
1-2 bricks of cream cheese (I used low-fat)
1 package of Bacon (I used center cut for less fat but full flavor)

That is IT!

Slice jalapenos lengthwise and scoop out innards with a serrated spoon. Fill with cream cheese. Cut bacon slices in half , wrap around Jalp, fasten with a party pick. Place on a broiling pan. Bake in a pre-heated 425 oven for appx 15 mins or until bacon is done to your liking.

Walk with the King!

We make something similar in our home. We mix a cup of blue cheese with the cream cheese. It gives it a stronger cheese flavor. My girl friends don't even like blue cheese, but they LOVE these. I bring them to every event.

I have a variation of this appetizer as well. With my recipe, you use shredded cheddar (or Mexican cheese mixture) to fill the peppers. Then you just top with the packaged, pre-cooked crumbled bacon that you can buy at the local grocery store or at Costco/Sams. It works best if you either bake (oven or microwave)the peppers by themselves for a few minutes after slicing/cleaning them to soften them a bit; then add the shredded/grated cheese and bacon. Then bake for a few more minutes to set the flavors. Also, as a helpful hint for anyone working with jalapeno peppers, it is a GOOD idea to wear some disposable kitchen gloves (the cheap, cheap ones work just fine) when working with them -- and by all means, do NOT rub your eyes!!! I learned that from experience ;-)

Whoohooo! I have some girls who know how to cook up in HERE! I LOVE your suggestions! Keep em coming! I love blue fact, I have never met a cheese I didn't like! haha. Casey- the peppers are not spicy in the least (when you take out the seeds), isn't that interesting? I like a bit of kick so I leave a few in. May you all enjoy these in good company and fellowship! ~Janelle

Great recipe. Make sure your readers know that it is very important to wear gloves when you are scooping out the seeds. If you touch something after scooping out the seeds (eyes, little ones, etc.) it is very painful. I learned the heard way!

OWCH! Did you hear that ladies? Wash hands after touching the peppers/seeds.
