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

"Nice recipe"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2015

"These were absolutely wonderful! I made them according to the recipe and they turned out great! I've made them several times and brought them to parties and every time I get requests for the recipe. It's also the appetizer I get the most requests to bring to a party. I didn't use chili powder but rather bought the dry packet of chili seasoning (as that was what I assumed the recipe was suggesting) and mixed that with the brown sugar. I think it adds a lot more depth of flavor than chili powder alone."

"These were great... used chili powder. Probably could have used less brown sugar, but other than that, they were a hit."

"Awesome :) I used a 4 cheese Mexican blend, little fresh grated parmesan, added a few dashes Worcestershire sauce and 4-5 drops Frank's to the cream cheese, parcooked the bacon and put a strip on top to cover cream cheese vs wrapping, mixed 2 heaping tsps Brown sugar with some chili powder and sprinkled on bacon to kinda glaze the 18 poppers I made. Huge hit and has already been requested for the next party."

"Great recipe, but PLEASE wear gloves !!! Lesson learned as I had a scratch on my ear and reluctantly scratched and it burned all morning and as for my hands they are still burning, but dipping them in a small glass if milk did help take a small amount if the burn away."
