Bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapenos

I tasted this wonderful concoction for the first time on New Year's Day, 2020. I had gotten a couple cans of whole jalapenos at Dollar Tree because for a long time, they didn't have slices, and I like jalapeno chicken, often.

At the beginning of January, I also had bacon, cream cheese and shredded sharp cheddar. So I made a batch. Sliced each jalapeno in half, left the stem end uncut, mixed the cream cheese and cheddar together, added a dab to each pepper and used a half a strip of bacon on each pepper. And I made another batch today, because I had all the ingredients handy again. This batch was prettier than the first batch

I need to remember to open the kitchen window and turn the vent fan on before I start frying batches, because the aroma really cleans out my airways. Well worth it!

1. Those are good to make outdoors on the bbq or smoker

Just a few moments on the cooler side so the cream cheese doesn't run out. But we've used toothpicks to keep them closed. And it saves the runny eyes.

3. Good idea

maybe next summer I'll make a batch and take it to my daughter's. They have a cooker, smoker I used less cheese filling this time and they didn't leak as much.

5. I recall frying the bacon until it was half done

You know, still soft enough to wrap around but cooked enough that it gets finished on the grill.

I have to be careful with these.

7. I thought about doing that

If I make them for others, I will try that. Most of this batch behaved. lol

2. Thick bacon wrapped around an jalapeno stuffed with cream cheese, dipped in sweet chili sauce.

Delish. I have a restaurant next to where I work and they serve this. I recommend it often to people going over there for a drink, or dinner.
