Poppers

  • 10 ‏large jalapeno peppers
  • 8 oz. ‏cream cheese-I use low-fat.
  • 10 pieces ‏bacon

This is by far, my most requested recipe. It hits all of your tastes buds-spicy, creamy, salty, smoky, and sweet. This is a recipe for 4 people, but it can very easily be doubled or tripled for events. The poppers can also be made in advance and cooked right before serving.

  1. Wash and dry peppers.
  2. Cut peppers in half. I don’t wear gloves, but DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE!
  3. Use a spoon to scrap our the seed.
  4. Use a spoon to stuff the peppers with cream cheese.
  5. Cut the bacon in half and wrap it around the peppers. Leave the end of the bacon on the bottom of the pepper so it stays wrapped while cooking.
  6. At this point you can refrigerate the poppers until you want to cook them or you can cook them.
  7. You can cook these on a grill pan with the grill at about 400 degrees or in a 400 degree oven. I usually use my baking stone.
  8. Cook poppers for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is done to your liking.

While the poppers are cooking, you can make the sauce.

Red Raspberry Sauce

  1. Place apricot jelly and raspberries in a bowl.
  2. Microwave for 20 seconds.
  3. Stir and mash up the berries slightly.

 

Get the biggest peppers you can find.

 

Scrap out seeds with a spoon.

 

Use a spoon to stuff the poppers with cream cheese.

Try to get bacon with least amount of fat that you can find. Cut it in half.

Half a piece of bacon fits perfectly around half of a pepper. No toothpicks required!

This sauce is super easy and adds a cooling sweetness to the poppers.
