When you are from Louisiana--
You Gotta Love Football and
You Gotta Love the Saints!!
So in honor of this week's victory over the Carolina Panthers,
I decided to give you a great football snack with a little kick, just like Drew and the Boys!!
This recipe is very easy and everyone usually eats as many as I make.
(Makes 24 individual poppers)
12 jalapeño peppers
4-6 ounces cream cheese
12 pieces of center-cut bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove top of peppers and slice down the middle. Remove veins and seeds. Spoon a little of the cream cheese into each half of the peppers.
Cut each piece of bacon in half and wrap around the cream cheese filled peppers. Secure with a toothpick.
Place in the oven and cook until the bacon is done, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and pat with a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Serve with ranch dip.
