Spice things up a bit

Nights are getting relatively cooler here in the North East so there is no better time to spice things up.  Follow along…

Start with fresh jalapeno peppers.

hot pepper 004

Cut in half; scrape the seeds and ribs out of each pepper.

hot pepper 010

Fill each pepper half with cream cheese, I used light.  You can also use goat cheese.

hot pepper 017

Wrap each pepper half with a 1/2 strip of bacon.

hot pepper 023

Place in a pan lined with aluminum foil.  Bake at 350 degrees until bacon turns crispy.

hot pepper 028

Finally, devour them!

(Writers note – I didn’t waste any time serving these, as you might suspect by the lack of a well taken photo of the finished gems.)
