Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno Poppers
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Another Jalapeño offering. The brown sugar really put a twist on this one. It really takes down the heat from the jalapeño. While the chili powder says I’m here too. VFE
These are delicious! The brown sugar and chili seasonings take these to a whole new level of jalapeno poppers. They candy the bacon and add to the deliciousness.
No adjustment. Perfect as is
These are always a win! Sometimes, when I don't feel like dealing with the jalapenos, or want to bring a less "spicy" option, I use mini sweet peppers instead. They're a totally different flavor but still really good!
I'm sure these will be delicious but I'm stumped. How do you 'coat' them with the brown sugar/chili seasoning and get it to stick? I can see that I could sprinkle them with the mixture but from the picture it looks like they are actually 'coated'. Can someone advise?
I make these allllllllll the time if I want to impress at a potluck or holiday event. I add a little cumin and garlic powder to the cream cheese mix and also do half cheddar half Monterrey Jack for the shredded cheese. I would ABSOLUTELY encourage you to bake these low and slow. They turn out much better for me at 300 and doubling the time. It also helps if you have a rack to cook them on over a pan so the drippings fall down and away. I also over-filled mine with cream cheese mix the first time and they kind of exploded so I remember not to over pack them. Now I've perfected "my take" on this they are always a hit!
Everything is better with bacon and this is no exception. My family loves the sweet and spicy combo. This is a recipe that we enjoy making a lot.
Yummy! Yum, yum, yum!
I fried the bacon and crumbled it into the cheese mix, and my family loved them
I had to bake mine longer than what the recipe stated to get the bacon crispy, about 30 mins total. Love the sweet/spicy bacon with the creamy cheese mixture.
