Zesty Jalapeno Poppers...

This is the perfect little snack or appetizer for a
 small get together with family or friends.

My hubby loves anything hot, 
so I found this recipe in one of my cook books
and changed it up a bit by adding in
 fresh garlic to the cream cheese mixture.

Jalapeno Poppers!!

Yep, these little puppies are hot!
Make sure to wear gloves when removing the seeds or
your hands will burn, literally BURN for hours afterwards.
Trust me on this one, my hands burned
 for about 5 hours after removing the seeds
and not wearing gloves!!
I will NEVER do that EVER again!

I soaked my hands in vinegar,
 and then milk and rubbed lavender on my hands
and then after researching on Google, 
the one thing that worked the best 
was a mixture of sugar and olive oil, crazy right?!

Once, you get the jalapeno seeds out, 
smear in your cream cheese 
and fresh garlic filling.

Next, wrap a half a piece of bacon
 around the jalapeno
cream cheese mixture. 
Insert a toothpick through the bacon 
and pepper to secure it in place.
Place your poppers onto a foil lined cookie sheet.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.

I placed mine under the broiler for 
about 3 minutes to give them a nice crisp.

And, viola!  
You have Smoking Hot
 Jalapeno Poppers with bacon!

Jalapeno Poppers

5-10 jalapenos
1 pkg. cream cheese
1/2 a pkg. bacon, cut in half

Cut jalapenos in half long ways, 
wearing gloves scrape out seeds
 and the membrane of the peppers.
Mix cream cheese and 2 cloves chopped fresh garlic.  
Smear on the cream cheese mixture
 on to each half of the pepper.
 Wrap the bacon around 
the cream cheese and pepper.  
Insert a toothpick into each 
bacon wrapped pepper.  
This will secure the bacon in place
 and will prevent it from curling while baking. 
 Place the poppers on a foil lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
You can place them under the broiler 
for an extra 3-5 minutes for an extra crisp 
around the edges!

Take out of oven and enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs to you all,

Hi Amy! My dear mother ADORED jalapeno poppers. She would order them all the time. My husband also likes hot foods (and bacon) so he would love it too.

I've been thinking about you, and hope your summer is going well. Happy Father's Day to your husband, and your dad as well. Today is my wedding anniversary, and my sister is coming in to visit my Dad for the weekend. So, it's a fun day :)

You have my stomach growling and its only 7:40 in the morning. I would love to have one of these with an egg right now. Thanks for the recipe. Steve would love them. I think I will make them when I get home.
Nathan is going to be with us for a couple weeks… so perfect man pleaser appetizer (woman pleaser too).

I skinned roasted chills one year with out gloves and ended up with the same problem for a day and a half.
No internet in those days to get tips, and I can't remember what I did, but I learned my lesson.

Miss Ya Amy. Look forward to seeing you soon.
Love you,

Oh WOW Amy,
These look so good and I know my hubby would love them. thanks for the recipe and the how to pictures.
These would be a great side for the Fourth of July! I don't know what we are doing this year but I will file this recipe! I wish we were going to be in Colorado for the Fourth because I keep hearing about that great water fight parade in Pueblo West that my parents go to with you and your family. I can't bear to miss another year of that!!!!! Maybe next year!

Love you and miss you all.

Oh, so sorry about the seed burn. Sounds horrible and I am thankful for your warning.
