Cast your vote for Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

A jalapeno pepper is a medium sized chili pepper. They are typically eaten while still green but sometimes they are allowed to ripen to a crimson red color before eaten. These little beauties are both delicious and nutricious. They are spicy but not overbearingly hot. This recipe includes cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, and bacon. The blend of flavors is incredible. Stuffed jalapenos make a great party food, appetizer, or side item.

      Thanks Carol. I really enjoy them. For extra for flavor trying mixing in dry ranch dip mix or 1/2 pack of taco seasoning into the cream cheese before stuffing the peppers. Hope you enjoy!

      P.S. they can also be cooked easily on the George Foreman grill or similiar kind.
