...jalapeno poppers...

Do you have somewhere to go tonight or tomorrow or this weekend but are so over cooking and baking you want something quick and delicious and sweet and spicy and with bacon and foolproof?  Thought so.  I knew that was your criteria- knew it.

I made these before the holidays, when I was feeling just about the same.  I wanted something easy, something delicious, and something that would be a crowd pleaser.  I flipped to the Pioneer Woman cookbook, and knew I had to make these.  As she said they would be, they were a hit.  I would make them again, easy.

Recipe thanks to PW, and loosely adapted because I got larger than life jalapeños

  • Ingredients you'll need

  • 9 fresh large jalapeños or 18 smaller ones

  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese

  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese

  • 1 green onion, sliced

  • 9 slices thin bacon

  • Barbecue sauce

  • Toothpicks

  • Before I go on with the recipe you should know that you're not going to want to deal with jalapeños then rub your eyes.  Fire.

  • 1.  Cut the jalapenos in half and scrape out the seeds and membranes.  I left some of the stems on for looks.

  • 2.  Mix the cream cheese with the cheese and green onion.  Fill the jalapenos with the stuffing

  • 3.  Wrap bacon around each jalapeno and secure with a toothpick.

  • 4. Brush some barbecue sauce on top of each 

  • 5. Bake at 275 for 1 hr, until the bacon is nice and cooked.  

  • You'll be a hit, they'll be a hit...it's a good way to start 2011!
