bacon wrapped jalapeño with cream cheese

Cover BwJwCCWhen we first moved to our neighborhood, we were greeted by friendly neighbors. One bachelor in particular walked us over fabulous new food for our taste buds. Bacon wrapped jalapeños? What is this! Since then, we have had these delicious appetizers as a fun treat… and the hubs has wanted a big green egg ever since!



4 Jalapeños
Cream cheese
6 – 8 strips of thick bacon

Start by cutting each jalapeño in half and gutting the contents. I took a sushi cooking class the other weekend, and they said seeds or no seeds, the spice is within the pepper… but I remove the seeds juuuust in case. Also, I would suggest wearing gloves, so you don’t get the juices in your nose or eyes! Trust me, it isn’t fun! If this happens use milk to minimize the burn of the spices on your skin. It works.

After everything is hallowed out, put the cream cheese in. I found the easiest way to do this is to put the cream cheese in a zip lock and cut out a corner.

Then, wrap these little guys in bacon. Everything is better with bacon!!
