Bacon wrapped Jalepeno poppers
I thought these were a great alternative to deep-fried poppers and a great addition to our movie night! I am admittedly a baby when it comes to spicy things. I usually carry on and on about my mouth burning, but for some reason I always go back for more. These were no different, Joe likes things really spicy so I kept some of the membrane and seeds in the peppers which really added some extra heat.
Cut the jalepenos in half length wise. Using a spoon remove the seeds and white membrane, leaving some in the peppers if you like the heat. In a medium bowl combine cheeses. Spread cream cheese mixture into each jalepeno half. Wrap each pepper with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpic.
Bake in a pan with a rake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Serve immediately.
