From the Circle L Chuck Wagon~ Circle L Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

From the Circle L Chuck Wagon~  Circle L Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos 

If you like spicy and bacon, you will love these! Halved jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese, shredded cheese, Chugwater Chile and wrapped up with bacon. Add these to any meal. 


The other night Cade, My Cowboy and I made bacon wrapped
shrimp and our Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos. They were a huge hit.

Today’s recipe is full of bold, spicy flavors. 
These are so good that they will make you cry. 

I'M KIDDING but they’re real spicy. They have tear-jerking heat.

*Bacon*Jalapenos*Cream Cheese*Chugwater Chili*Shredded Cheese*

That is all you need. 

Circle L Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos 

12 Fresh Jalapeno Pepper ~ (If you don't like Heat, you may pick a milder pepper.)
8 ounces Cream Cheese ~ Soften to room temperature
1 1/4 cup of Shredded Cheese ~ I used Colby/Jack, but you could use any shredded cheese)
1 teaspoon of Chugwater Chili Spice (If you don't have Chugwater Chili, then any chili spice might work, but I suggest you buy some Chugwater Chili!! I would be glad to ship you some.) 
12-24  Slices of Bacon (This is where you have a choice, you can either cut the bacon strips in half or you can be like I am and use 1 whole piece of Bacon per Jalapeno half.)

Preheat oven to 400F degrees or start your grill. (Line a cookie sheet with tin foil, if you are cooking in oven.)

Cut the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and center membrane. Set aside. Don't wipe your eyes!!

Using a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, cheese and Chugwater Chili together until combined. 

Spoon filling equally among all 24 jalapeno halves.

Wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a slice of bacon. (If using a 1/2 piece of bacon, use a toothpick to hold bacon in place.)

Place on your grill or in the oven and bake for 25-28 minutes or until the bacon is crisp to your liking. 

Serve immediately. You can save leftovers in a covered dish and keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days but I doubt you will have leftovers!!

Any Questions?!!
These are Amazing!!
