Jalapeno Heaven

poppers

My friend gave me a few jalapenos today.

004

Okay, she gave me A LOT of jalapenos.

005

A grocery sack full of them to be exact.

I was chomping at the bit to make some jalapeno pepper jelly but I hadn’t planted any this year so my friend Marva gave me the mother load. We had made a deal that I would make the jelly if she supplied the peppers so tomorrow I have my work cut out for me! I just couldn’t resist those peppers for dinner this evening after Marva told me her easy recipe for jalapeno poppers.

This evenings dinner got a little spicy.

002

First you take your jalapenos (as many as you want) and cut them in half and take out all the seeds and ribs. Then fill those halves with cream cheese. Next, take some bacon and cut each piece in half length wise and then in half again. You’ll want one piece of bacon per popper.

001 

Wrap each cheese filled pepper with a piece of bacon and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

003

Now I did something a little extra to about half of my poppers that my friend didn’t tell me to do but I really liked it.  With about 15 minutes left to go in the oven, I sprinkled half the peppers with brown sugar. The results were so yummy.

They are delicious with or without the sugar, but if you like that salty-sweet-spicy combo, you’ll love the brown sugar on them.

So easy and so delicious! Thanks so much Marva for the peppers and the recipe!

Happy Tuesday.

love,

Val
