Jalapeno Popper Recipe

Here ya go Steph - the recipe! =) We ate these as an appetizer at a restaurant together and I made my own concoction . . . because me always thinks to myself 'I can totally copy this' ;) Everyone else, BEWARE: this stuff is addicting - you could make a meal out of it alone . . . and then you still crave it again the very next meal! Absolutely the yummiest thing out there:

14 jalapenos - sliced in half long ways, insides and seeds removed
Wear food grade gloves when handling this many jalapenos at once - trust me, I learned this the hard way ;) It is a very uncomfortable feeling to have your hands continually burn for 4+ hours!!
Mix together:
4 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
4 cloves raw garlic, crushed
1 can green chilies
1/2 cup chopped artichokes
Cut in half:
14 pieces of THIN sliced bacon
Stuff filling into each jalapeno halve and wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around it.
Bake it 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes - can even broil it for the last few minutes.
ummmmm, now my mouth is watering for these babies . . .
Pin It

YOU ARE THE BEST! Thanks for the heads up on the gloves. I don't need another ailment. :) The poppers are actually in my head....calling....."please make me so you can eat me!" Hopefully they won't be disappointed that they are not being made in YOUR kitchen. So YUM Cheri! Thanks!
