Number of Servings: 3


    9 Jalapeno Peppers
    1 Slice Fried Crumbled Bacon
    1 Cup Shredded cheese
    4 oz. Cream Cheese


Cut the Peppers in half long ways and remove the seeds. Cook the peppers 2 to 3 minutes for spicy or 5 minutes for nonspicey. Drain and place aside. Meanwhile fry your bacon until crispy. Set aside until it cools down enough to crumble. Mix cream cheese and cheddar cheese together. Place the peppers on a baking pan at 400F for about 8 minutes or until looking like they are drying and some what crispy. Layer the peppers with the crumbled bacon. Then top with the cheese mixture. Place back in the oven for about 5 minutes. Let cool for about 5 to 10 minutes and enjoy:)

    I like the idea of the bacon. I make a version of these but do not precook the peppers. They do soften a little in the oven, but we like the crunch of the peppers. I sometimes add beef, sausage, chicken or turkey pieces. Any leftover meat is good. - 12/11/08

    You would need to boil the pepper for 2-3 for spicy or boil for 5 min for non-spicy. The longer they boil, they become less spicy. You boil them in order for the pepper to be a little soft. If you don't boil on the stove with water 1st, the pepper will come out hard after you bake them in the oven. - 12/11/08

    Here is a version I love to make. I cut the peppers in half and clean them out, put a teaspoon of favorite cream cheese in each half, put them back together and wrap with half a slice of bacon, securing with a toothpick, then sprinkle peppers with ranch dip mix. Bake 20-25 mins in 375 oven. - 12/13/08
