These stuffed little things give a nice little bit of heat. Add more peppers if you like... after you try one first.

Ingredients

16
mushroom caps, stems removed and chopped and reserved
4 slice
bacon 2 cloves garlic, minced
2
jalapeno pepper finely chopped, ribs and seeds removed
2 pkg
(3oz) cream cheese softened
2 clove
garlic, minced
1/4 c
and 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp
olive oil
cooking spray
sea salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble the bacon slices and set aside.
2
Preheat an oven to 350°F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
3
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chopped mushroom stems, garlic, and jalapeno; cook and stir until the mushrooms release moisture and soften, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mushroom mixture to a bowl, and stir in the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and bacon. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the cheese mixture generously into the reserved mushroom caps, and arrange the stuffed caps on the prepared baking dish.
4
Bake in the preheated oven until cheese begins to brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
