Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Gluten Free Jalapeno Poppers

10 strips bacon, cut in half
10 jalapenos
8 oz package light cream cheese, you'll use more or less depending on the size of your jalapenos

Prepare jalapenos by slicing them in half and removing the tops, seeds, and membranes (the membranes are the spicy parts, so if you are daring, leave some in). Spread the cream cheese into the middle of the jalapeno. Wrap with a half slice of bacon. Place on a foil lined broiler sheet and broil for 5-7 minutes, checking frequently for doneness of bacon.

I just tried this recipe and it got rave reviews. While they're not exactly like the kind you find in restaurants, they are still very good. Be careful to wash your hands after handling jalapenos, especially before touching skin. I used light cream cheese because it's easier to spread and I'm hoping it offsets the bacon calories ;) I googled "jalapeno poppers bacon" and found many recipes that were quite similar, adding cheese and spices, but this was good and simple just the way it is.
