stuffed jalapenos with bacon

Spicy jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese, topped with melty cheddar and smoky bacon.

Yields: 12 pieces



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Carefully slice the jalapeños in half length-wise, removing the seeds and the membranes. Using a butter knife, fill each jalapeño half with the softened cream cheese and set them on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle each jalapeño with grated cheddar cheese. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the jalapeños for the oven and sprinkle them with the crumbled bacon. Return them to the oven for another 5-10 minutes, until the cheese begins to brown and the jalapeños are tender. Drizzle lightly with honey (optional). Serve promptly.
