Mando's Famous Bacon Peppers

Here at LoB we had a friend Armando, that worked with us.  You may remember him from the "Weight of Heaven" post, he was the one with the slicer.  Any time we have a potluck we could count on Mando to bring in these fabulous treats, they were always one of the first things to be gone.  Mando is no longer in our space, having moved on to greener pastures.  But the demand for his famous bacon wrapped peppers remains.  He was good enough to send over the details on this surprisingly simple to fix appetizer.


(1) container of cream cheese
(1) 1 package of bacon


1. slice the jalapeno (about 1' girth) without breaking the jalapenos (be gentle on the Jalapeno)
2. spoon out the seeds
3. stuff the cream cheese in the crack of the jalapeno
4. wrap the bacon around the juicy jalapeno

Cooking Instructions:

Pre-heat oven at 350. Place the jalapenos on a flat cookie sheet and cook for about 30-45 minutes until the bacon looks cooked. You want the bacon to be a little crispy.

Thanks Mando!

I wonder how this would be with Bacon Freaks Jalapeno Bacon?

You can also put crumbled bacon in the cream cheese to get double the bacon. Just a thought...
