The first thing I decided to make was Jalapeño Poppers. They're SO simple, very cheap, and extremely tasty! What more could you ask for, right? And to make them even better, they're spicy.
But don't let that scare you! When you're cooking with jalapeños you can make them as spicy (or not spicy) as you want. Here's what you do, when you slice a jalapeño in half you'll see the seeds and the membrane. If you don't want it spicy, you'll want to take all of that out and just leave the shell of the pepper. Depending on how spicy you want it will determine how much of the inside you take out. (You didn't know you were going to get a lesson on jalapeños did you?)
When handling jalapeños, you may want to wear gloves. Hands should not come in contact with eyes as this may cause burning.
Trust me, if you're not a fan of spicy foods you should still try these. Really! My sister hates spicy food, and she loved these! Don't be afraid, just try them. I promise you'll like them!
1 tube Crescent Rolls
1 8 oz Cream Cheese
5 slices of Bacon (cooked)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Chop the jalapeños and bacon into small pieces.
Unroll the crescent rolls and place them on a greased baking sheet. Cut cream cheese into about 1-inch squares and place one square on each roll. Sprinkle jalapeños and bacon onto the cream cheese (put as much in each one as you'd like, there's no rule for this).
Wrap the crescent roll around the filling so that they are in the shape of a ball.
Bake in the oven for 13 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
