Reviews for Jalapeno Pepper Appetizers
"Friends and family love this recipe!!"
"Had these at a halloween party last night and they were awesome!!!"
"excellent and easy"
"Substituted precooked bacon to make them less greasy. Reduced baking time to 10 minutes."
"These are so simple to prepare and delicious! I took the cream ycheese right from the fridge and cut it across the width and then cut it in half again. The cream cheese was easy to handle and the pieces fit right into the jalapenos."
"I have been making this recipes for years and it is a real hit. The only changes I made are do not remove seeds & membrane and use Herb & Garlic spreadable cream cheese. Also make sure the pepper goes completely around may need to use one slice of bacon but it's worth it. You will get great Raves and requests for more please."
"I make these all the time, but usually add some grated cheddar cheese and chives to the cream cheese. We grill instead of put under the broiler. The idea of just 3 ingredients and wrapping a filled jalepeno in bacon is WONDERFULL!!!!!"
"Love these....I added Hidden Valley Ranch Dip powder mix to my cream cheese. awesome!!!!"
"Tasty, easy just a little greasy but worth the try! I will def make again :)"
"These are also excellent with smoked sausage links. My daughter makes them in the smoker...delicious!!"
"My sister-in-law made these for my daughter's graduation open house. They were a hit with our guest."
"I made this recipe for a potluck at work and they were gone in no time. Seems to be a favorite with guys. I can see these served doing football gameday on tv."
"I add a shrimp and spice the shrimp, with a cajun spice mix, on the cream cheese then wrap in bacon. OMG, can't get enough. This is the first time I have seen a recipe for them, the neighborhood always says to enter them in a contest or submit the recipe, glad someone finally did. We stumbled upon the idea bu trying ot jazz up plain poppers, so why not add bacon and shrimp and kick it up a notch."
"My family and friends love these! I use my own variation and add shredded cheese in with my cream cheese and I wrap them in maple flavored bacon. So yummy!"
"Oh so delicious! Personally, I don't think each half needs 2 tsp cream cheese. I prefer around 1. But do whatever you like!"
"Delicious. Easy and gone quickly."
"This was very easy to make and the family just loved it!"
"Throw these on the grill with a few wood chips to give them a smoky flavor. It puts the flavor right over the top. You can't make enough."
"Where in this receipe does it call for Tony's Chachere's spice"
"SOrry. It's the Tony Chachere's More Spioe Blend. But our regular grocery store doesn't carry it. We find it at Academy Sports in their camping section"
"DH makes these only he uses onion and chive flavored cream cheese. Then, he'll sprinkle Tony's Casseri(sp?) on top."
