Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno Poppers
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
These are delicious! The brown sugar and chili seasonings take these to a whole new level of jalapeno poppers. They candy the bacon and add to the deliciousness.
No adjustment. Perfect as is
These are always a win! Sometimes, when I don't feel like dealing with the jalapenos, or want to bring a less "spicy" option, I use mini sweet peppers instead. They're a totally different flavor but still really good!
I'm sure these will be delicious but I'm stumped. How do you 'coat' them with the brown sugar/chili seasoning and get it to stick? I can see that I could sprinkle them with the mixture but from the picture it looks like they are actually 'coated'. Can someone advise?
I make these allllllllll the time if I want to impress at a potluck or holiday event. I add a little cumin and garlic powder to the cream cheese mix and also do half cheddar half Monterrey Jack for the shredded cheese. I would ABSOLUTELY encourage you to bake these low and slow. They turn out much better for me at 300 and doubling the time. It also helps if you have a rack to cook them on over a pan so the drippings fall down and away. I also over-filled mine with cream cheese mix the first time and they kind of exploded so I remember not to over pack them. Now I've perfected "my take" on this they are always a hit!
Everything is better with bacon and this is no exception. My family loves the sweet and spicy combo. This is a recipe that we enjoy making a lot.
Yummy! Yum, yum, yum!
I fried the bacon and crumbled it into the cheese mix, and my family loved them
I had to bake mine longer than what the recipe stated to get the bacon crispy, about 30 mins total. Love the sweet/spicy bacon with the creamy cheese mixture.
My family didn't like these. They were very bland.
