10 jalapeno peppers
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
10 bacon strips, halved
Seasonings of your choice...I like to use minced garlic & Cajun seasoning. I also like to use chopped fresh shrimp and/or crab meat too. Delish! Adjust the amount of ingredients to feed a
crowd. I promise this won't be enough! :-)
Before you even begin with the peppers, put on rubber gloves!! I keep a box of the toss away latex type for things like this.
Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds, stems and center membrane. Stuff each half with about 2 teaspoons of cream cheese filling. Wrap with bacon and secure with toothpick.
I prefer them grilled, however, you can use the oven too. Just place on a broiler rack that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 425' for 20-25 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Remove toothpicks. Serve immediately.
Adding an icy cold margarita just adds to the flavor....and fun! ;-)
I hope that you and your loved ones have a fun, safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
