How To Make Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

  1. Wash Jalapenos (there is no telling where they have been)
  2. Cut stem ends off (I like to wear gloves for the next two steps)
  3. Hull the seeds out.  We use a Jalapeno Huller
  4. Pack each jalapeno with cream cheese.
  5. Wrap each one with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  6. Place in tray.
  7. Continue until all are placed in the tray.
  8. Put shredded cheese on top of each jalapeno.
  9. Season tops with your choice of seasoning. (Seasoning salt is always a nice choice, too.  You can experiment to find exactly what you like.
  10. Cook in the oven until the jalapenos are soft and the tops are browned.  (The longer you cook them the less hot (spicy) they will be.

Last but not least, enjoy your very own Cowboy Pickle!
