ULTIMATE JALAPENO POPPERS
Prep: 10 min Cook: 20 min Serves: 6
6 jalapeños, halved (seeds removed)
1 cup cream cheese
1 package of Naked Bacon
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup diced green peppers
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 cloves diced garlic
pinch salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
Heat oven to 400'
Cook bacon partially for 7-10 minutes (this will make it crispier when the poppers are actually cooked).
Microwave cream cheese in a bowl for 1 1/2 minutes or until smooth.
Add shredded cheese, garlic, green peppers, onion, salt, and pepper to the cream cheese mixture and stir.
Fill jalapeños with cream cheese mixture and wrap with the partially cooked bacon.
Use a toothpick to secure the bacon.
On a sheet pan, lay down foil coated with the olive oil and cook the poppers at 425' for 10 minutes or until crispy. You may also use a cast iron skillet with olive to fry the poppers.
