Add a Little Spice to Your Life!

We're not football fans, so we didn't NEED these to watch the game today, but I WANTED these again, so I made them. Ha! =) They're wonderful!! And you need to make these ASAP. You won't regret it, I promise! I got the recipe from Ree's blog (who I looooove). Her recipes (which I loooooooove) are amazing! And she's too funny to boot! =)

Ree's Jalapeno Bacon Thingies

I edited it a little bit to make it even easier. Sometimes I'm lazy like that. =D

Ingredients:

Fresh jalapeno peppers
Reduced fat cream cheese, softened
Peppered bacon, cooked and crumbled

Directions:

(I really recommend going to Ree's blog --link above-- if you're going to make them. She provides much more detailed instructions.)

Wash and dry the peppers. Slice off tops, then slice each pepper in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon, and you're left with these little beauties:

**Oh yeah, major word of caution! WEAR GLOVES when handling the peppers! If you don't... well, now that's something you WILL regret!! Yeeouch!**

Mix together the cream cheese and crumbled bacon. Stuff each pepper with the mixture. I'm not neat with it, and I like mine FULL, so I just plop it in there and let it overflow. =)

Toss them all onto a cookie sheet, lined with foil for easy cleanup.(And I do mean toss! I wasn't interested in making them look pretty this time. It was allll about getting my yum on! =D)

Bake them at 375 for about 20 minutes, or until the peppers look a tad soft and wrinkly and the cheese gets just a touch of golden on top.

That's it! Super easy and oh my gosh, they're so good! Try not to eat the whole pan before your husband gets up from his Sunday afternoon nap. Not... that I've had any personal experience with that or anything... Noooo, nothing like that... *shifty eyes*

Enjoy!
