Ingredients

  • 12 Jalapeños
  • 1/2 cup Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 or more cup Mild Cheddar Cheese
  • 12 slices bacon Cut In Half
  • 1/4 pound Chorizo Optional

Instructions

  • Preheat over to 400 degrees F.
  • Combine the cream cheese and cheddar cheese together in a bowl.
  • If you are using Chorizo, scramble over medium heat until done. Drain and set aside.
  • Cut the tops off the Jalapeños and slice in half. Scrap the seeds out with a spoon. It's a good idea to wear gloves to prevent skin agitation later.
  • Cut bacon in half.
  • Fill each Jalapeño half with the cream cheese mixture, then chorizo, and then wrap with a half piece of bacon. You can use a toothpick to hold in place if desired. You will also, stretch the bacon as you wrap the slice.
  • Place on a cookie sheet and back for about 10 - 15 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
