Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos Recipe

One of the best-grilled appetizers is bacon wrapped jalapeno peppers. This recipe is so easy to make and it only consists of 3 ingredients; fresh jalapenos peppers, cream cheese, and bacon.  The jalapeno peppers are first sliced in half then seeded, stuffed with cream cheese, wrapped with bacon and grilled. You should consider wearing gloves when slicing and seeding the jalapenos because they can burn your hands. With the playoffs coming up and the super bowl near this is a perfect recipe for game day. Enjoy.

Sorry, but putting on grill till bacon crispy resulted in very charred bottoms. Plus, need garlic or onion powder in cream cheese.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll revisit this one.

I mix some brown sugar and cumin in my cream cheese. Then I put some brown sugar on a plate and coat (LIGHTLY) the bacon. It "candies" the bacon...yummy!

I might have missed someone else saying this but for those of you who want these less "spicy" when you are seeding them the more of the membrane you take from the inside of the pepper the less spicy they will be. Also if you want them more spicy leave as much of the membrane as possible (and the seeds if you want them very spicy)

Boursin herbed cheese would be great in these.

Why remove the seeds? That's the best part. Don't neuter the pepper!
