Stuffed Jalapeno Firecrackers
This recipe came about after years of competition with family and friends over the perfect stuffed jalapeno. Bring your tissues because these are HOT! Goes well with Summer Beer I from this site.
- Serves: 24 persons
- 12jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise
- 1(8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- Cajun seasoning, or to taste
- 12slices jalapeno bacon, cut in half
Step 1Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
Step 2Fill the jalapeno peppers with cream cheese. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning on top, then wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Arrange the wrapped jalapeno peppers in a single layer, face down on a broiler rack.
Step 3Broil in the preheated oven until the bacon becomes crisp, 8 to 15 minutes on each side.
