Bacon Jalapeno Bites

These are great to help balance out all of the sugar we have been eating this Valentine's season! These make a wonderful appetizer or snack on a movie night.

I found this recipe on thepioneerwoman.com; once again she has produced something amazing!

These only require 3 simple ingredients, and come together very quickly.  We served them at our New Year's party, and they were gone in no time at all.

Bacon Jalapeno Bites

  • 10 whole jalapenos
  • 1 pack of bacon, cut in half (you will only use about half a pack)
  • 1 block of cream cheese, room temperature
  • toothpicks
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil
  2. Cut each jalapeno in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds and membrane with a spoon (If you want some spice, leave some of the seeds and membrane behind)
  3. Fill each jalapeno with the cream cheese
  4. Wrap a half-slice of bacon around each jalapeno, and secure the bacon slices with a toothpick
  5. Place the cookie sheet on the bottom rack
  6. Place the jalapenos (cream cheese side up) on the upper rack above the cookie sheet (the cookie sheet will catch any bacon grease)
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the bacon is fully cooked
  8. Enjoy!
