Now, how could we go wrong with bacon, jalapeños and cheese? They’re smoky, are perfect for game day entertaining, can be made in the oven or on the grill and are absolutely addictive.
All you really need are four ingredients and you’re on your way to bacon-wrapped heaven. You’ll need jalapeños, cream cheese, chives or spring onion and bacon.
You’re also going to need some wooden toothpicks or bamboo skewers. The trick when using these in the oven or on the grill is to soak them in water first. That way, they won’t catch on fire or burn.
When it comes to peppers, the heat is in the seeds and the white membrane on the inside of the pepper. So, when you cut the peppers in half, use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and membrane for mild-medium spiced poppers.
Oh, and here’s a good pepper tip: wear plastic gloves. You see, the oils that get on your hands when you’re handling hot peppers will stay there, so if you were to rub your eyes after touching the peppers, you could really hurt yourself. We buy our powder-free gloves at a pharmacy.
For the filling, you just want to mix cream cheese and some chopped chives or spring onions together with a spoon. Then, use a spoon to fill each pepper-half.
Now, for the bacon! Cut four strips of bacon into thirds.
Then, wrap one piece of bacon around each filled pepper and secure with a toothpick.
Now, just bake or grill until the bacon is crispy and the peppers are tender. Then, enjoy!
