BACON WRAPPED STUFFED JALAPENOS
These are so frigging tasty! The dip is great as a stand alone but when added to the Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños it's simply divine.
Bacon Jalapeño Dip (on its own)
8 ounces cream cheese (room temp)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sharp cheddar
3 diced green onions
1 diced jalapeno *omit if making stuffed jalapeños
8 slices of cooked bacon, chopped into small pieces
1. Mix together cream cheese and mayo until smooth. Add diced green onions, jalapeños & cheese.
2. Spread in a pie pan; top with chopped bacon. 3. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños
20 pieces of uncooked bacon
Bacon Jalapeño Dip
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Make the dip as same as above, omitting diced jalapeno. 2. Cut jalapenos in half and scoop out seeds. If jalapenos are really hot, soak them in cool water for 30 minutes, drain and dry. 3. Cut each slice of bacon into two pieces. 4. Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture into the jalapenos. Smooth down mixture so it’s not overflowing from the sides.
5. Place two half pieces of bacon side by side. Place the jalapeno, cream cheese side down, in the middle of the bacon slices. Wrap the jalapeno with bacon and set on a tray seam side down. (Optional: place a toothpick through to keep bacon more secure.)
6. Preheat a grill and layer with foil. 7. When the grill is hot, place the jalapenos seam side down on the foil. 8. Cook until bacon is golden brown, rotating until each side is cooked (about 2-3 minutes on each side). Turn carefully because sometimes bacon sticks to foil. 9. Remove from grill; let cool.
