Happy Friday, my friends. I am so glad this week is wrapping up! It’s been a long one! And tomorrow I am heading into a long weekend full of soccer games, birthday parties and house cleaning! So not exactly a glamorous weekend either but at least we have a little break from work and school. Who else has a weekend full of busy days?
Today I wanted to share a quick and easy recipe for some Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers that is so easy and quick to make. These ones were actually from a super bowl party this year and since I haven’t been the best blogger these days, they’ve never gotten shared!
One trick I’ve learned is that when you cut your jalapeno, cut the stem in half also so it gives you something to hold on to!
They bake up super fast and are so delicious!
They don’t really fit in with my current Weight Watchers lifestyle, but could easily be altered to fit with light cream cheese and even turkey bacon. You could use less cream cheese, or drop the shredded cheese to lower your calorie/point intake.
10 Jalapenos sliced the long way
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 c. shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 tsp garlic salt
10 slices of bacon, cut in half
Slice your jalapenos in half the long way and empty out the seeds. (you may need to use gloves for this part! Whatever you do, just don’t touch your face!)
Mix together cream cheese (regular or flavored, it’s up to you!) garlic salt, shredded cheese then stuff the jalapenos.
Next, wrap in a half piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Bake at 400* for about 25 minutes.
Do you love Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers? Do you use regular cream cheese, or flavored?
