This is one of my favorite summertime peppers.
Sliced and placed on top of deviled eggs
Placed in chili (okay, that's a wintertime meal)
Jalapeno popper stuffed chicken
I love the flavor of a fresh jalapeno. Not necessarily the hotness of the pepper, but the flavor is awesome.
Always, always, always use gloves.
When working with jalapenos, is it always automatic for your eye to itch right when you cut the first pepper?
That seems to always happen to me.....
These were fantastic, but the next time I make them, I'm going to make sure I get the bacon strips wrapped around the ends of the peppers. While they baked the cream cheese filling oozed out. I also think I will place these under the broiler for the last few minutes.
Don't let my tips discourage you from making these.....just consider my tips and try them yourself.
I will be making these again. And again. And again.
I only had 7 jalapenos, so the recipe is adjusted for 7
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. shredded Mexican cheese
2 TBS mayonnaise
1 TBS dry ranch dressing mix
Bacon strips cut in half
Cut jalapenos in half, remove seeds. Place a good amount of cream cheese mixture in each jalapeno half. Wrap each jalapeno with bacon and secure with a tooth pick. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 25 minutes.
"And these go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
I commented about not liking the heat......
Eternal punishment takes place in hell (the lake of fire or Gehenna), the place of punishment after death for all those who refuse to repent. In the Bible, three words are used in connection with eternal punishment: 1. Sheol, 2. Hades, and 3. Gehenna. When Jesus warns against unbelief, He is trying to save us from agonizing, eternal punishment.
