I made these for a picnic and they were a big hit! No one knows how simple they are. They taste great, are easy, and a definite crowd-pleaser. Hope you like em as much as we do.
- 25 jalapeno peppers, medium sized
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 4 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
- Put a pot of water, large enough for all of the peppers to boil, on. Preheat oven to 400 F
- Cut jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds. Place peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain well.
- Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce, stir well. Place one heaping teaspoon cheese mixture on each pepper half. Sprinkle with bacon. Place on a baking sheet.
- Bake at 400 F for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
Great poppers. Even if the jalapenos were boiled, they were still enough spicy for us. Thanks enigma :) Made for All you can cook buffet
I don't know if it was the cream cheese to shredded cheese ratio but I just didn't like these. The picture shows the filling to be more orange from the cheddar but mine were not and I used the exact amounts. I think the worcestershire sauce may have also added an odd flavor. Sorry, these just didn't "do it" for me.
Much easier than wrapping with bacon strips and grilling. Rather than boiling the peppers, I like to roast them in the oven for about 10 minutes or until soft. For me, a pepper should be roasted, not boiled! I love the flavor and smell of a roasted pepper.
