There’s no faster way to get a party started than with these bacon-wrapped poppers. Make them ahead and bake just before serving. Even the hot pepper intolerant will love them.—Dawn Onuffer, Crestview, Florida

MY REVIEW

Do we use fresh jalepenos or canned. I have never cooked with Jalepenos before.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 9, 2014

These have a lot of potential but they weren't quite perfect. I thought "chili seasoning" meant the packets of seasoning mix, such as McCormick's- I wish I had used chili powder instead, I didn't think that the flavor of chili seasoning went very well with the brown sugar. I had a ton of brown sugar mixture left over so next time I'd make half the amount.

I also really agree with other user's comments about pre-cooking the bacon, and cooking the poppers on a rack in the pan.

These are amazing and easy to do but I would wear a mask and use gloves, and I found slightly cooking the bacon before wrapping made the appetizers even better

These were fantastic. The combination of sweet and spicy really made them great. Our guests wiped them out in no time.
