Bacon-Wrapped Cajun Jalapenos
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
8 large jalapeno peppers
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
8 thick-sliced peppered bacon strips
Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise; remove seeds and center membranes.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and Cajun seasoning. Stuff about 1-1/2 teaspoonfuls into each pepper half.
Cut bacon strips in half widthwise.
In a large skillet, cook bacon until partially cooked.
Wrap a bacon piece around each pepper; secure with a toothpick.
Place on a wire rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
