Stuffed Jalapeños

Jalapeños are a staple ingredient in my family.  We love to add spice to our lives and our food  This recipe comes directly from my mom.  Stuffed Jalapeños are always a hit in my mom’s kitchen.  Add this sidekick to your Super Bowl festivities.  Plus use it again during your cookouts this summer!  I feel it will be a GIANT Super Bowl! -AF

Stuffed Jalapeños

12 Jalapeños

8 oz cream cheese (light works great)

12 slices bacon (may substitute turkey bacon)

Toothpicks

Put the jalapeños in boiling water for about 5 minutes.  It makes the jalapeños softer and takes less time to cook.  This step can be left out if you want to punish yourself.

Cut the jalapeños in half and take the seeds out.  (Gloves are recommended for all the known reasons)  Fill each half with cream cheese.  Cut the bacon in half and wrap around the stuffed jalapeño.  Use a toothpick to keep together.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is cooked.  Or you can throw them on the grill.

My parents double the recipe and freeze half.  Easy to cook.  Take jalapeños directly out of the freezer and cook 40-45 minutes.
