Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

In the summertime, when peppers are *everywhere* here in Texas, the bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers show up at all sorts of parties and events. In fact, our local grocery store makes ready-to-cook filled & wrapped peppers (that you can just cook in the oven or on the grill). But they are so easy to make at home, that I thought I’d give it a try. The result? SO tasty! Enjoy!

Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

A Karen original recipe
10 servings

Ingredients:
5 large jalapenos, cut in half (with ribs and seeds removed
10 Tbsp whipped cream cheese
5 slices bacon, cut in half

Directions:
Cut peppers in half, removing seeds and ribs. Fill each half with 1 Tbsp whipped cream cheese, wrap each with 1/2 slice of uncooked bacon.

Preheat grill to medium. Place peppers on grill and cook until bacon is cooked and peppers are tender, about 10 minutes.

Alternatively, preheat oven to 400, and place peppers on a tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until peppers are tender and bacon is cooked.
