It’s halftime at the Super Bowl! If you ran out of yummy snack tonight, why not whip up a batch of these delicious Stuffed Jalapeños? Bacon and cream cheese rounds out the flavours of these tasty morsels, and you can sprinkle some seasoned breadcrumbs on top before popping them in the oven for some extra texture.
If you like things spicy, you can choose to leave some of the membranes and the seeds from your jalapeño peppers, as the white membrane contains the chemical compound called capsaicin (which is found in all hot peppers) and gives chili peppers their heat.
The hot, fried bacon will soften up the cream cheese as you mix it. Save the grated cheese for the last addition otherwise it’ll melt too quickly.
At this point you can add an extra Panko/Parmesean topping before putting it in the oven, but it’s just as good without it. Panko is a type of flaky breadcrumb that’s commonly used in Asian cuisine.
