DIRECTIONS

  • If you are NOT A HEAT-FREAK, you can tone down the jalapenos by soaking them in milk for about 15 minutes before stuffing, but this makes them real, real mild.
  • If you don’t mind a little warmth, just follow the rest of the recipe without soaking.
  • If you do soak them, rinse and blot the peppers dry before stuffing them.
  • WARNING: Wear rubber gloves when slicing and cleaning jalapeno peppers.
  • You can get real bad chemical burns if you don’t!
  • Do not touch your eyes or suck your thumb after preparing peppers until after you have washed your hands real well, even if you do wear rubber gloves.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cheeses, bacon, and seasonings, and mix well.
  • Stuff jalapeno halves generously with cheese mixture.
  • Roll tops in breadcrumbs, refrigerate for 10 minutes, and coat again with the breadcrumbs.
  • Place on a greased baking sheet, and bake, uncovered, in a preheated 300degF oven for 20 minutes for a spicy flavor, 30 minutes for medium flavor, or 40 minutes for mild.
  • Serve with dipping sauces of choice or just plain.
