Texas Jalapeno Poppers

My sister lives in Texas and this little appetizer is a delicacy down there.  Every time I see her we are making these delicious jalapeño poppers. And oh how they are Yummy!  The downfall to these dangerously addictive poppers is avoiding touching your eyes after making them.  Twice now I have made these and touched my eyes after, leading to several tears and red eyes for the next couple hours.  This is why I recommend wearing gloves when de-veining the jalapeños or resisting the urge to touch your eyes.

Texas Jalapeno Poppers

  • 20 fresh jalapeños
  • 2 blocks of cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 lb bacon
Directions
Cut off tops of jalapeños and slice in half, length-wise.  Remove seeds and veins inside the jalapeños, the veins are the source of heat so leave some white if you want spice. I would recommend wearing latex gloves when deveining and removing seeds. Spread cream cheese on each half of the jalapeños.  Slice bacon in half and wrap around the jalapeño and cream cheese.   Bake on a pan at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Let cool for a few minutes and serve.

    One of my fav appetizer in the world! If you have never tried this its a must! It is also very good with strawberry cream cheese! Makes it a Dessert almost! Did you know that if you rub cooking oil on you hands before removing the seeds your eyes will not water and if you have any small cut’s on your fingers it will not burn!!
