i like.. no i can honestly say i love my job.. i enjoy the people i work with and the job itself.. but... i really really really love fridays!! (well who doesn't) and there is nothing better than sitting out back by the fire pit.. enjoying a cold beer with some tasty appetizers.. and these little babies are probably the easiest apps i've made in a long time.. i've been making them for years but had forgotten about them.. how i have no idea.. i guess it's that oldtimers i am getting.. but i saw these here on pinterest and was reminded of how easy and yummy these are..
i mean they have what 4 ingredients.. jalapenos, cream cheese, bacon and cajun seasoning.. that's it and if you don't want.. don't use the cajun seasoning.. i just happen to like it with the bacon.. gives it a little kick against the sweetness of the cheese.. and don't fear these are not too spicy..
bacon wrapped cheesed stuffed jalapenos! (even the name sounds awesome)
prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 40-45 minutes
servings: 24 apps.
12 jalapenos cut in half and seeds removed
1 small tub of 1/3 less fat cream cheese (room temperature)
12 pieces of bacon cut in half
cajun seasoning like tony chachere's
pre heat your oven to 375 degrees.. take a lined baking sheet and place a rack on it.. (i cooked them without the rack and while they tasted totally delish they where sitting in the bacon grease and made for a mess) take your cut and seeded jalapeno and spoon in some cream cheese filling the cavity of the pepper then wrap in a slice of bacon and place on your rack.. continue all the jalapenos are stuffed and wrapped.. put in the oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes!
