Submitted by: MRSDUDLEY

Introduction

These little poppers are great to take to your next gathering. The spicy pepper, the creamy cheese and the crispy bacon make this appetizer a winner every time!

I've seen versions with just the jalapeno stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon, but for only a few extra calories I decided to step it up a knotch. Enjoy!
