Great Jalapeno Poppers - A New Favorite

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

I have been waiting all week for this Friday because I knew I would have enough jalapenos to try and make home made jalapeno popper appetizers. I had everything ready for when I got home from work today: rubber gloves, sour cream, cheese, and bacon. I write this post now after scarfing down several poppers and I am really impressed with how good they tasted. I will be making some more batches this weekend for sure.

Here are the peppers I picked for the poppers.  The top row is a variety that has no heat and the bottom row are regular jalapenos. You can see that the regular ones are darker green.

Here is one of the four plants I have, as you can see I still have several peppers to harvest even after todays picking.

Here are the poppers all ready to go. I stuffed the inside with a cream cheese and shredded cheese mixture and then wrapped the outside with precooked bacon. The precooked bacon worked great because it cut down on how much grease was produced during cooking. I also only had to broil these in the oven for about 10 minutes and they were ready.

Yummy!! I've got some mammoth jalapenos that I don't think will ever get ready. I LOVE stuffed jalapenos and can't wait to make my own.

This was my first time growing jalapenos and making poppers, but they were pretty tasty. Thanks for the comment.
