So, I saw this video online the other day, and it reminded me of That 70's Show, with it's funny/trippy backgrounds and transitions, and wouldn't you know, That 70's Show doesn't fail to provide good Bacon Entertainment! Check out That 70's Bacon.
So, I bought some Cajun seasoning for Mardi Gras, and I was wondering what else I could use the spice in, and I found this TREASURE. These peppers are so addictive, that you most certainly have to make a double or quadruple batch. I don't actually think my husband got to try many, as I couldn't stop at 2. The Jalapeños are not that spicy after they have been baked, as the seeds and membranes have been removed. The flavor is out of this world!
Bacon-Wrapped Cajun Jalapeño Peppers
- 8 large Jalapeños peppers
- 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup finely shredded mild cheddar cheese
- 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
- 8 thick-sliced bacon strips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut bacon strips in half width wise. In a skillet cook bacon until partially cooked. Drain on a paper towel.
Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise; remove the seeds and center membranes. In a smaller bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese and Cajun seasoning. Stuff the peppers with about 1 to 1 and a 1/2 tsps into each pepper half. Wrap the bacon piece around each pepper; secure with a toothpick.
Place peppers on wire rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Discard toothpicks. Serve immediately.
