DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon, cool and crumble.
  • Cut mini pitas in half with scissors.
  • In bowl microwave margarine and onions until soft - about 2 minutes.
  • Add cream cheese and blend with mixer until creamy, fold in crumbled bacon, tomato and peppers and stuff into pitas.
  • NOTE instead of the jalapeno peppers you may use a small jar (just under 4 1/2 ounces)of garlic and jalapeno puree, which is my favorite way of preparing these. This also makes a terrific dip.
