This is NOT my recipe. I took it from the Pioneer Woman. Well, actually, I took it from my God-mother who took it from the Pioneer Woman. This is my attempt.
You only need 3 things!
I used the lower in fat bacon and fat free cream cheese. I am sure it tastes better with the fat.
Oops: make that 4 things. Your gonna need some tooth picks too!
First thing first: Wash those jalapeños & Pre-heat your oven to 375.
Next: Slice them up.
Then take a spoon (or your finger but careful not to touch eyes after) to hallo them out.
I prefer to leave a few seeds in them for a little kick. However, if serving to a group I suggest cleaning them out real good! Wash em up again if you need to. :)
Next slice your bacon into thirds.
Then make yourself a pretty little assembly line
Next take a spoon and fill those jalapenos up with cream cheese!
Mmmmm... I say the more the better but it really doesn't matter how much you use!
Then wrap those bad boys in bacon. And stick a toothpick in them so the bacon stays on.
Now: if you have seen these on the Pioneer Woman's site, she uses a cooking sheet with a rack on it. I don't have one so this will have to do. (I think the only difference is that I got bacon grease all over the bottom of my jalapeños!)
Anywho: stick those hot jalapeños in the oven for 20 -25 minutes. (I went with 20 and it was fine)
Oh so yummy!!! I need them again just posting this!!
But since I don't really eat much dairy my next attempt at these will be made with Soy Cream Cheese & Turkey Bacon. I promise to post that as well... Could be interesting :)
