Welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen, y’all! I’m whipping up some appetizers for the fire-breathers among us. If you like things hot, this one’s for you. It’s ridiculously simple but the combined flavor of the cream cheese and bacon make my Overstuffed Jalapeno Bites irresistible. Let’s get cooking!
“Overstuffed Jalapeno Bites”
12 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 (8 ounce) package whipped cream cheese
12 slices bacon, cut in half
Teaspoon Tony Chachere’s
Dash of All Things Southern hot sauce
I’ve preheated the oven at 400 degrees and washed and halved these 12 fresh jalapeno peppers, lengthwise and cleaned the seeds out. (Remember to use gloves for that step! Those peppers can burn your skin!)
To prepare the stuffing we’ll take our softened cream cheese and whip in a teaspoon of Tony Chachere’s (or your favorite season-all) and a dash of All Things Southern Hot Sauce (or whichever poor substitute you can find.
Once it’s stirred up we’ll stuff our jalapeno boats with it and finish by wrapping a half slice of bacon around each one. Then we’ll place ‘em on a single layer on a baking sheet and bake ‘em for forty-five to fifty minutes or until the bacon is brown and crisp! Have mercy! Enjoy my Overstuffed Jalapeño Bites, y’all. That’s good eating from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours.
