These delicious appetizers were a hit at our Easter Sunday potluck Brunch. I was pleased to find the recipe was in one of our local cook books 'A Taste Of Heaven' and surprisingly a recipe I had been thinking of trying. Delicious, easy and a crowd pleaser! I find putting them on a cookie sheet and heating through in a 350 oven make for a marvelous hot appetizer. Also excellent at room temperature.

  • 1 (18 count) package mini pita pockets (Cut in half)
  • 14 cup margarine
  • 12 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 8 slices bacon (cooked cooled and crumbled)
  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped
  • 13 cup jalapeno peppers, finely chopped or 13 cup use a small 4 1/2 ounce jar of garlic and jalapeno puree


  1. Cook bacon, cool and crumble.
  2. Cut mini pitas in half with scissors.
  3. In bowl microwave margarine and onions until soft - about 2 minutes.
  4. Add cream cheese and blend with mixer until creamy, fold in crumbled bacon, tomato and peppers and stuff into pitas.
