Whenever i have a party i always buy the Jalapeno Poppers from trader joes, but i ran across this recipe and seems easy enough!
- 6 Jalapenos, seeds and stems removed
- 3 Ounces Cream Cheese
- 1 Teaspoon Chili powder
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
- 6 Strips Bacon (I like using the Center Cut bacon for these)
- 6 Toothpicks soaked in water
Soak toothpicks in warm water for at least 30 minute,s and cut off jalapeno stems and split the peppers down the center. Scrape out all the seeds.
In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, chili powder and honey until well combined. Spoon cream cheese mixture into both halves of each jalapeno.
Stick jalapeno back together again and wrap each jalapeno with a whole strip of bacon. Be sure to cover the top of the jalapeno so the cream cheese doesn’t all come out.
Use a wet toothpick to secure the bacon and hold everything together. Grill poppers on medium heat until the bacon is crispy and pepper is cooked, about 20 minutes, and turn occasionally.
Some of the cheese will drip out while cooking. Let cool 5 minutes before serving or the melted cheese can burn your mouth.
Are you still looking for ideas to keep the kids busy for the rest of the summer? Well here’s an idea – how about hosting a Tie Dye party for kids in the neighborhood, or for a birthday coming up!
i LOVE this backdrop, they used it here for a graduation party but i feel as though it could be used for any kind of party. It could be behind a dessert table, gift table, even a photobooth backdrop.
Make it yourself, directions can be found here
