Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies

If you're a wimp and when you hear 'Jalapeno' are immediately turned off because you don't like hot things...listen up! These puppies are not hot at all. They are super simple with only THREE ingredients and absolutely addicting. My sister just gave me some fresh jalapenos from her garden, so I only had to get two things at the store. Check out the link to Pioneer Woman Cooks on my blog.

Fresh jalapenos 2-3 inches in size

Cream cheese softened

Thin regular bacon sliced in thirds

1.) Cut jalapenos in half, lengthwise. With a spoon remove the seeds and membrane (this part is what makes it hot, so if you like a little HEAT, leave a little in there). Smear the softened cream cheese in each of them and wrap in bacon, secured with a toothpick. (At this point you can freeze them, uncooking in a ziplock back for the next get-together!)

2.) Bake on a pan with a rack in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 min. Make sure they are crispy, serve em' HOT!
