What a crazy week ahead of me! I expected Ktams to be out of town all week so I made all of these plans to keep busy, and then his trip was rescheduled. Now I’m backpedaling so I can spend more time around home with him. I can tell you I’ve got a fun happy hour at Andina coming up, and then the Portland Bloggers Event this Saturday!!
I’ve got to keep my readers’ bellies full though! Today I bring you what is becoming a go-to appetizer for grill season: Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Jalapeños. Y-U-M. What could be better than cream cheese, Colby Jack, bacon, and peppers!?
Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Jalapeños
- 1 package jalapeños (if you shop at Trader Joe’s) otherwise approximately 6-8 large, straight jalapeño peppers
- 2-3 slices of Colby Jack or sharp cheddar cheese (depends on the size of the jalapeños), cut into strips
- 3-4 slices bacon, cooked
- 2-4 oz cream cheese (again, depending on your pepper size)
- Toothpicks (optional)
- Jalapeño stand
