I was looking for some appetizers that would be perfect for watching the Final Two of March Madness tonight. Go Kentucky!
These Lil Smokie Stuffed Jalapenos with Bacon are a great appetizer or anytime snack, and I know we’ll enjoy them tonight while we cheer on the Cats to beat UConn.
Lil Smokie Stuffed Jalapeno with Bacon
- 10-12 Jalapenos
- 1 pkg. Lil Smokies
- 4 oz. Cream Cheese Softened
- 10-12 Strips of Bacon
- ½ teas. Garlic Salt
- ¼ teas. Ground Cumin
Cook the bacon strips until about half way cooked remove to paper towel lined plate.
Prepare Jalapenos using small sharp knife by cutting at the stem end across the pepper but only cut about ¾ of the way through. Cut down the insides of the pepper along the ribs and remove the core, seeds and as much of the ribs as possible.
In a small bowl combine the Cream Cheese with the Garlic Salt and Cumin.
Place a good teaspoon of the Cream Cheese in the pepper and add the Lil Smokie, Squeeze shut.
Bake at 350˚approximately 35 minutes. Cook longer for milder Jalapenos, Cook shorter for spicier.
