Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno Poppers


5 large-ish jalapeno peppers

1 pack cream cheese (I use the veggie flavor)

Shredded cheese

1 pack bacon


Preheat the oven to 450.  Cut the jalapeno peppers first.  Cut them into quarters (1 cut longways, 1 cut across).  Clear out the insides of the peppers as you are doing this.  You will probably get seeds all over your hands, so be sure to wash them before you do anything else.  (If you touch your face after touching the  seeds it burns…. a lot.  I know this from experience).  Once your hands are nice and clean, fill each jalapeno quarter with cream cheese, then sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and wrap with a whole or half strip of bacon.  Once you have done this with all of them and placed them in a pan, cook for 20 to 30 min depending on how dark the pan is and how crispy you like your bacon.

WARNING: These are extremely hot (spicy) for about 10 minutes after they come out of the oven, then the flavor becomes less intense.
