Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies

I made these as an appetizer for Thanksgiving and they were soooooo freaking good!! Thanks to Pioneer Woman for the recipe!!


* Fresh jalapenos 2-3 inches in size
* Cream cheese (softened)
* Thin, regular bacon, sliced into thirds


1. Cut jalapenos in half, length-wise.
2. With a spoon, remove the seeds and white membrane (the source of the heat; leave a little if you like things HOT.)
3. Smear softened cream cheese into each jalapeno half.
4. Wrap jalapenos with bacon piece.
5. Secure by sticking toothpick through the middle.
6. Bake on pan with a rack at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes (mine took almost 30 min). You don't want the bacon to shrink so much that it starts to squeeze the jalapeno. If after 20 minutes the bacon doesn't look brown enough, turn on the broiler for a couple of minutes to finish it off. These are best when the jalapeno still has a bit of a bite to it.
7. Serve immediately, or they're great at room temperature too.
