I love bacon. I actually don’t really trust anyone who doesn’t love bacon. Now that I eat ketogenic (high fat, moderate protein, and low carbs) I have to get a little bit creative with my Cinco De Mayo choices, but I can eat all the bacon I want so I present you with Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers! I found this recipe on Pinterest originally and tweaked it a little bit, it is super easy and super delicious!
- 3 fresh jalapeño peppers
- 2tbsp cream cheese (softened to room temperature or I used whipped cream cheese)
- 1tbsp of shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
- 3 slices of bacon cut in half
- 6 toothpicks
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cut the stems off of the jalapenos and then slice the peppers in half. Clean out the ribs and all of the seeds.
Mix the cream cheese and shredded cheese together and stuff the peppers. Take ½ a slice of bacon and wrap it around the pepper and secure with a toothpick. You could probably actually use a whole piece of bacon and really wrap that pepper up!
Place them in a baking dish (I used a square glass pan) and bake them for about 30 minutes or until the bacon looks crispy.
