Juhlapinos for Momma

these are the poppers i was making when i was talking to you...

CUT big fresh jalapeno in half
SEED it, or else, holy smokes
STUFF the crap outta that baby with regular cream cheese
WRAP in a slice of raw (i like thick peppered) bacon
BAKE at 350 for 30min (jalap bit more firm) to 45min (jalap soft and bite-able)
DONT burn your tongue on the cream cheese; it's sneaky inside
--make sure to use pie pans/pans with edges because the grease runs everywhere.
--you can shove a toothpick through it for easy eating and so it doesnt fall apart.
--you can make them in advance and cook them later, or cook them now and nuke them later.
--i wouldnt use microwave bacon cause it cooks too fast and will get too hard after 45 minutes. ja know? besides, the real stuff is always better no matter what.
