If you’ve read the blog for a bit, you know me and know I’m terrible with real recipes. I think of something to make and just start making it…at least that’s what I do with main dishes and sides. Baking, I typically follow a recipe or have a recipe memorized.
Today I’m going to take you along as I make some Bacon Wrapped Jalepenos. I started out with three but ended up making five peppers worth for a total of 10.
I use gloves when I cut jalepenos. I mixed up a half pack of cream cheese with equal amounts of sour cream and shredded cheese. Then I added garlic powder to taste.
Then I…filled the jalepenos with the mix and wrapped them with bacon. Typically I use thin cut bacon and only a half of a strip for each jalepeno.
The thin bacon stretches and wraps so nicely around the jalepeno. On this day I had thick cut bacon in the refrigerator and it needed to be used up. Do I used it.
I pop these in the air fryer for ten minutes on high.
These turned out not so cute because of having to use the thick bacon. It unwrapped. They were still really tasty though and I guess that’s what’s most important.
My jalepeno plants in the garden are loaded. I could make these every day for a week and still have a few on the plant.
Between roasting the jalepenos and the mixture in the jalepenos, these aren’t really that spicy so I love these.
I’ve been trying to use the remaining things in the garden. Any other ideas to use jalepenos. I’m not one that like heat so think of the least hot thing a person can make. Please share any ideas in the comment section of something I could do with the remaining jalepenos in the garden. I hate for them to go to waste!!
