Adam’s Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Yields4 ServingsPrep Time20 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time35 mins

 2 tsp Olíva! Garlic Olive Oil
 1 tbsp Olíva! Denissimo 25yr Aged Balsamic
 10 jalapeño peppers, halved and seeded
 10 strips of bacon
 1 cup cream cheese, softened
 ½ cup cheddar, shredded (or Mexican blend)
 salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F.


To make the filling, combine the Olíva! Garlic Olive Oil, cream cheese, shredded cheese and salt & pepper in a medium sized bowl.


Stuff each jalapeño half with the cheese filling just to the top of the jalapeño "boat". Do not overfill.


Wrap each jalapeño with bacon. (It took about ½ a bacon slice to wrap 1 popper) Place a toothpick through the pepper to help keep the bacon from unraveling.


Place poppers onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until bacon is nice and crispy.


Finish with a drizzle of Olíva! Denissimo Balsamic for a sweet tangy twist and serve immediately!
