Recipe | Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

bacon jalapeno


8 large jalapenos
1 1/2 cups or so of grated cheese. Mozzarella, Cheddar or whatever you like.
16 slices of bacon
16 toothpicks
1 six pack of beer, preferably Corona

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Open 1 beer and drink about half.

Wash and dry jalapenos.
Slice jalapenos in half, length wise and clean out the seeds, using a spoon to scrape them out. I recommend wearing latex gloves.

Have another swallow of beer; tastes great, don’t it?

Stuff with cheese. When I say stuff, I mean lean on it!
Wrap the jalapeno in bacon, and secure with a toothpick.

About time to open another beer?

Place on a baking rack and put on a cookie sheet or dish; don’t want it to drip!
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes; if the bacon doesn’t get crispy, you can broil it for 3 -5 minutes.

Let them cool for a few minutes. Open another beer, turn on the game and consume with gusto.
Be sure to share the snacks; your friends can bring their own beer.
