Perfect appetizer for the Super Bowl
Start out by frying up 8 pieces on bacon just until they start to get crispy then remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels until ready to assemble. Slice off a thin layer lengthwise on the jalapeño and then spoon out and remove the seeds. Rinse each pepper and rinse out any remaining seeds, dry and place on a baking sheet.
Now it’s time to make the cream cheese filling. So basically, beat the cream cheese and then add grated cheese, sliced onions and cilantro. Mix until everything is well incorporated and then spoon cheese mixture into each jalapeño.
Once each pepper is filled, wrap each one with a slice of bacon. Using tooth picks to hold in place, place the jalapeños back on the baking dish and pop in the oven. Roast until bacon is crispy and cheese filling is nice and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
Imagine all the different flavors in these delicious appetizers. From the crispy bacon, to the cream cheese, spicy cheese and then the onions and cilantro, oh my, so good!
