Rita has a use for the jalapenos you grew this year - OLE!


Here’s a really yummy appetizer made even better with homegrown jalapenos!

BAKED JALAPENO POPPERS

Ingredients

1 pound jalapenos, halved and seeded (wear gloves!)

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese

6 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled

Bread crumb coating:

Mix together:

1/2 teaspoon each salt and garlic powder

1 cup or so bread crumbs

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325.

Mix cheeses and bacon together. Stuff into jalapeno halves. Roll into bread crumbs - they will stick mostly to the top of the jalapeno. Bake 20-35 minutes. The longer you bake, the milder they become.
