Jalapeno Poppers II

Stuffing something with cheese instantly makes it better. If you wrap it in bacon, UNSTOPPABLE.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cut jalapeños in half. Scoop out seeds and extra membrane. Soak peppers in a bowl of water for 30-60 minutes. This helps reduce some of the oil from the peppers which is what gives them their heat.
  2. Mix the cheddar cheese with the cream cheese. Using a knife, fill each pepper with cheese.
  3. Cut the the bacon in half or in thirds so you have enough for each pepper. Take bacon strip and wrap as many times around bacon as you can. Place wrapped peppers on a baking tray.
  4. Preheat the broiler in your oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the bacon turns nice and crispy. Take out of oven. No matter what, no matter how tempting, let them sit long enough to cool.
  5. Note: use latex gloves when handling raw jalapeños, especially the seeds. Otherwise, the oil will get all over your hands and if you wipe your eyes or itch your nose, you are in for a world of pain. If you don't have latex gloves, just use plastic bags. Throw away gloves or bags as soon as you are done using. Wash your hands with soap just to be sure.

These are awesome. I know them as "armadillo tails" and "jalapeno bombers". This is also considered to be a simple lunch or a dinner side dish. I soaked the bacon in water for 45 minutes (removes most of the salt). After you remove them from the oven is hotter than molten lava (please wait 20-30 b4 eating them). Very additive too.

Better than store bought. Depending on the jalapenos, the heat is varied. Very good. Will be making this a regular snack.
