I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman’swebsite last year and have been waiting for an excuse to make them. We were having friends over for an appetizer party and knew these would be a big hit with the guys. They were super easy to make and really, really, REALLY delicious. I decided to use lean, par-cooked bacon to make them a little less fattening. They were a big success – everyone loved them.
Bacon and Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos:
- Fresh Jalapenos
- Cream cheese, softened
- Lean bacon, sliced into thirds (par-cooked or raw)
How to Make Bacon and Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos
Bake on a pan with a rack for 20-25 minutes. If the bacon doesn’t look brown enough after 20-25 minutes then turn on the broiler and finish cooking. These are best when the jalapeno still has a bit of bite to it and is not too soft. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
