Delicious: Bacon-Wrapped Cream Cheese Jalapenos

Keeping up with the food theme, I wanted to share my mother-in-law's recipe for a delicious snack to prepare the next time you have friends over for a poker night. Or a Super Bowl party. Or just over for a movie. Here you go:

Bacon-Wrapped Cream Cheese Jalapenos

1. Get jalapenos, cream cheese, and bacon. Each jalapeno pepper will make two servings. I used one Philadelphia cream cheese block for 15 peppers to make 30 jalapenos. 

2. Next, cut peppers in half length-wise and scoop out the insides with a spoon (a grapefruit spoon works great!). Please wear gloves during this stage because jalapenos are very hot, and you do not want to get their juice into your eyes. 

3. Fill up each half with cream cheese. A butter knife would work. 

4. Cut each bacon piece in half and wrap jalapenos, so that the edges of the bacon are on the back side of the peppers. 

5. Place jalapenos on the baking sheet and preheat the oven to 400 F. Bake for about 45 min or until bacon turns golden brown. 

6. Serve warm. Enjoy!
