Ingredients

  • 6 jalapeno peppers
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 bacon strips, halved widthwise
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  1. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds; set aside. In a small bowl, beat cheeses until blended. Spoon into pepper halves. Wrap a half-strip of bacon around each pepper half.
  2. Combine brown sugar and chili seasoning; coat peppers with sugar mixture. Place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  3. Bake at 350° until bacon is firm, 18-20 minutes.
Peppers (Hot)
