Ingredients

  • Ingredients amounts will vary depending on how many you make.
  • Medium size Jalapenos
  • Cream Cheese
  • Favorite Seasoning Mix
  • Bacon

Directions

  • Place jalapenos in a colander and rinse in the sink. Slice the top stem off every jalapeno.
  • Slice the jalapenos lengthwise in half.
  • Scrape the seeds out into the sink/trash.
  • This is where it gets messy..and you will need something over your hands...jalapeno juice hurts under your nails and cuticles too!!
  • After prepping the jalapenos, mix up your cheese filing.
  • I use just normal store brand bricks of cream cheese.
  • I left them out to soften a bit then mixed in some Creole Seasoning with the cheese.
  • This added to the HEAT
  • my friend uses Lemon Pepper Seasoning instead.
  • so you can pretty much add what you like.
  • Using a knife, spread the cream cheese into the jalapeno "boats".
  • Wrap each stuffed jalapeno half with a half slice bacon.
  • These are best prepared ahead of time and then cooked right before you are ready to serve.
  • They go well on the top level of a grill or under the broiler in the oven, just realize the they are going to release alot of fat because of the bacon. Broil/Grill until the bacon is cooked and the cheese is nicely melted.

Notes

Anytime my friends and I get together to party someone MUST make these. I made them for Superbowl Sunday this year. Be careful slicing and seeding the jalapenos. Wear gloves or plastic bags over your hands. I rubbed the tip of my nose while making these...it burned for an hour...if you get juice near or in your eye it's hell (done that too).
