How to Make Sweet and Spicy Jalapeno Poppers - YUM!


  1. Cut your peppers lengthwise and remove some or all of the seeds (I leave some in); set aside for now. In a small bowl add your cheeses and blend. Spoon into your pepper halves, wrap a strip of your haved bacon around the pepper and secure with toothpicks.
  2. Now in a shallow bowl or dish combine your brown sugar and seasoning of choice. Coat the peppers with the sugar mixture. Place them in a greased baking pan or cookie sheet lined with foil sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Bake at 350° for 18 to 20 minutes or until the bacon is firm. Remove toothpics. Enjoy.
