Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños - Handmade in the Heartland

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

So I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to spicy food and I thought I would totally hate these bacon wrapped jalapenos when my friend made them a few years go. I was super surprised to find that I love them, like love them so much I could eat a whole plate all by myself.  The cream cheese and bacon tame these treats so that there is only a hint of heat, which makes them totally irresistible. They are a perfect party food.  I normally get them all prepped the night before the party or morning of, put them in the fridge and then pop them in the oven 30 minutes before the party, this cuts down on my prep time in the few hours before the party begins.  I hope you enjoy them! :)

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños
Makes 20 Large- more if your jalapeños are small

Ingredients:
10 Large jalapeños (if they are small i would get about 15)
10 slices of bacon
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 375. Mix the spices into your cream cheese, i like to mix mine with my kitchenaid mixer because it makes it nice and smooth.  Cut your jalapeños in half and remove the seeds. Cut the slices of bacon in half.  Fill each pepper half with cream cheese mixture and then wrap the bacon around.  You can secure the bacon with a toothpick, however the bacon usually does stay without it. Bake for 30 minutes or until the bacon is crispy in spots.
