I make these on special occasions, and cook outs. Mmmm my family during Christmas cannot get enough of these, they are good cold or hot, and can be warmed up if there are leftovers. This is soooo easy, and so good. And you can double the amount, its too easy.

10 fresh Jalapeño’s
8 oz. of Philly Cream Cheese
1 lb. of bacon

Cut the jalapeno’s tops off (stems) then cut them long ways in half, from top to tip,

Then shell out the seeds and all the whit stuff (WEAR LATEX GLOVES) the juice is murder! You will now have 20.

Take a butter knife and fill the jalapeno shell with the cream cheese, about
even with the cut, level.

Wrap the bacon around, tightly all the way around so that nothing but bacon is showing.

Place peppers on a broiler pan.

Heat oven to 400 to 450 depending on sea level I would guess…. Cook for 30 to 45 minuets until bacon is crisp….

I like to cook these on the grill. No mess, no cleanup and no smell in the house!

Add a little cheddar or parm cheese
by: Nikki

I sprinkle with cheddar or Parisian cheese right before I remove from the oven and broil till melted. Also if your in a hurry, use real bacon pieces and whipped cream cheese! Yummy every time!

Great Appetizers!
by: Sue Venecek

This recipe is the best! When we go to Florida for the winter, we have a golf cocktail party every Tuesday - I always bring this and it's gone within minutes! Another one of Crystal's recipes is mini-bagels, spread with cream cheese, smoked salmon and garnished with a little seasoned salt and dill. I take this to the party and it's also gone in short order. Both are very easy to make.

These are great
by: Crystal

I'm always asked to bring an appetizer to family parties and love to find new appetizer recipes to try. I made this recipe and it was a hit! I used about 25 jalapenos (50 pieces total) and found I could use 1/2 of a slice of bacon per jalapeno if I stetched the bacon a bit. Gloves are a must, at least for me, when making these! I think all 50 pieces were gone in about 10 minutes. This is a definate repeat recipe for me. Thanks for submitting it. I posted a photo of what I made.
