Jalapeno Bites ~ Big Bites

Jalapeno Bites

 

This is a delicious little appetizer and much easier to make then you may think.   You may double or triple this recipe easily to serve more guests.  One or two peppers will make a nice serving for an appetizer.

Just seed and clean peppers.  The pepper should be seeded keeping the pepper whole, but I must confess, I didn’t have the patience.  I slit the pepper as carefully as possibly, deseeded and stuffed with the cream cheese.  The cream cheese holds the peppers together once stuffed.

Divide the cream cheese equally between the peppers and stuff carefully.  You can use a pastry bag or just spoon into the pepper, that’s what I did.  Wrap the cream cheese stuffed pepper with a slice of bacon and place on a baking sheet.  You can use other cheeses a combination of other cheeses if you prefer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used an aluminum foil sheet over the sheet but a stoneware baking pan would crisp the bacon nicely, also.

Bake approximately 30 minutes or until bacon begins to brown nicely.  We devoured them and they were delicious.  They reminded me of chili rellenos and I love chili rellenos ~ yum.

Enjoy!

      They actually were and even Dad liked them. The cream cheese really mellowed out the jalapenos and they were delicious!

      I was very sad you couldn’t stay and enjoy some with us. Love you!
