I cooked something really different .... and it's something I don't really like. Ok it is something I really hate, but Mr. Produce loves 'em so.... It's all about you, dear!
But wait here is the whole story. For Christmas I got the cook book: The Pioneer Woman Cooks
and frankly time being what it was.. I never had -any- to sit and read. When I finally did it was May.. and just in time for Mr. Produce's Birthday.
So here is The Pioneer Woman Cooks: BBQ Jalapeno Poppers (she takes WAY more pictures than I do) and uh, her's are better, (ya think?) I've added my own take on her recipe.
18 fresh jalapenos
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1/2 C grated cheddar cheese
1 green onion, sliced
18 slices think bacon, cut into halves
bottled BBQ sauce
toothpicks & rubber gloves
Cut Jalapenos in half lengthwise. with a spoon, scrape out the seeds and light colored membranes (that's where the hot taste comes from -ha- IT COMES FROM THE WHOLE DARN PEPPER FOLKS).
In a bowl combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese and green onions. Mix gently.
Stuff each jalapeno half with the cheese mixture.
Wrap bacon slices around each jalapeno half covering as much of the surface as you can. Be careful not to stretch the bacon too tightly around the jalapeno.
Brush the surface of the bacon with your favorite BBQ sauce. (chutney or apricot jelly works well too)
Secure the jalapenos with toothpicks and pop them in the oven for 1 hour at 350.
Serve hot.. (well duh they ARE hot).
if you like jalapenos you will LOVE this!
