Cream Cheese and Bacon Jalepeno Poppers

An even tempered low carb snack that's low in calories too.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cut the chili peppers in half lengthwise; scrape out seeds and membranes.
  2. Fill each half with cream cheese, but do not mound it. Four ounces should be just about the right amount for 8 average size jalapeno halves. If you have extra large peppers, make sure you have a full 8 ounces of cream cheese on hand.
  3. Wrap each with 1/2 slice raw bacon, making sure to start with the end on the bottom of the pepper. Stretch the bacon slightly to make it go all the way around each pepper once, then tuck ends underneath.
  4. Place cream cheese side up on foil-lined baking sheet. These can be assembled and chilled until just before baking and serving.
  5. Bake at 375° F (190° C) for 20-25 minutes.
  6. If bacon isn't quite done, broil a few more minutes to brown.

A great recipe, I used fat-free cream cheese, and uncured turkey bacon so that I would get more for my caloric dollar.

Also great with Feta cheese, and then grill outside. We have these in the summer all the time!

I have now made these twice for my fiance and I and they are wonderful! I will say (for any other clueless person like me) when you are taking the seeds out of the peppers WEAR GLOVES!! The first time I made them I did it with bare hands and I had to soak my hands in ice water the remainder of the night (nothing took away the burn). I wore gloves the next time! Also - we mixed in a few seeds with the cheeses to add a little more spice, and wrapped a few in percuitto, and that was good also!

I just made these on sat. and cut up some shrimp and bacon (cooked first) and mixed with 1/4 cup mexican shredded cheese and cream cheese and then stuffed peppers. oh my it was good!

These are pretty tasty, but took longer to cook than the recipe calls for. However, I will be making these again, with lobster meat mixed in to the cream cheese. It should taste similar to the lobster poppers I used to get at the Red Lobster restaurant. And yes, I do think this recipe is good for Atkins, Induction Phase; if it wasn't I wouldn't have made it in the first place.

So good and very easy to make. I used real bacon bits instead of wrapping the bacon which NEVER get crispy enough for me.
