Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers
Servings: 20 -30 jalapeno poppers
- 10-15 large jalapenos
- 8 oz cream cheese softened
- 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice I like sharp cheddar
- 3-4 green onions diced (optional)
- 1 pound of sliced bacon sliced cut in half
- barbecue sauce to taste
Slice jalapenos in half & scoop out the seeds & membranes with a spoon. Use gloves!
Combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, and green onions in a bowl. Stuff your jalapenos with the mixture. Wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a bacon half. Secure with a toothpick, & brush with a good helping of barbecue sauce.
Cook at 275 for 1 hour on a wire cooling rack placed on top of a baking sheet. Turn the oven to broil for a few minutes to brown the bacon up more, if desired.
This recipe calls for equal parts of softened cream cheese & shredded cheddar... then the optional chopped green onions mixed in. So, you can easily make as many (or as little) jalapeño poppers as you want.
