Jalapeno Poppers Wrapped in Bacon #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we are to create a recipe for our end of the year cravings. This was pretty tough because I crave a lot of things, but I finally narrowed it down to something I have been wanting to make and of course eat. I have for you my Jalapeno Poppers Wrapped in Bacon. Oh Yeah!! Peppers, cheese and bacon, need I say more?

This is one delightful appetizer. It is a spicy jalapeno, filed with cool cream cheese and cheddar cheese all wrapped in a piece of bacon. It is so good and sure to be a crowd pleaser. Plus, you want to know a secret? They are only 50 calories each. Yes, bacon and cheese together only 50 calories! He he I think I am in love!

To make this low in calories, I used reduced fat cream cheese with full fat cheddar cheese. For the bacon, I sliced it down the middle horizontally, so the calories per slice are cut in half. Plus to boot, I used a reduced fat bacon, which was only 20 calories a slice and cut in half, 10 calories! I used Applegate Good Morning Bacon, but you could also use turkey bacon or another reduced fat bacon. Trust me in this combo, no one will know the difference.

Not only are these little bites of spicy goodness taste great, but they are so easy to make. I had my Husband slice the jalapenos and de-seed them for me, while I mixed the cheese’s together. Just fill the jalapenos with the cheese mixture and carefully wrap the bacon around it. I used a toothpick to hold the bacon in place. Just remove the toothpick before serving. I baked my poppers in the oven for 15 minutes. Perfect!
