Bacon-wrapped jalapeños are the queen of snacks, perfect for the Women’s World Cup Soccer parties this weekend (if you’re going) and it’s really easy to make.
Ever since I was introduced to these, I’ve been cooking them for all the parties I had. All my guests like them. Even the pickiest eater I know, my Grandpa, loves them.
I broil them in the oven, but you can also cook them on the BBQ for a hint of smoky flavor. The BBQ is a little harder but it’s worth it. It will require you to tightly wrap the bacon around the jalapeños.
Creamy Bacon-Wrapped Jalapenos
- 6 Serrano (or Jalapeno) Peppers (Jalapenos if you like it spicy!)
- 8 oz Cream Cheese
- 16 oz Hardwood Smoked Bacon (Applewood if you like it sweet!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the peppers in half and dispose of the insides. It’s up to you if you want to leave the stems. Personally, I think it helps to pick them up while eating.
Spread cream cheese evenly inside the peppers without overflowing.
Wrap the peppers in bacon, starting at one end and finishing at the other.
Place peppers, cream cheese side-up on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes and then broil until desired crispiness.
Take them out, let cool for 5 minutes and enjoy your gluttonous snack!
