Game Day Recipe: Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Pepper Poppers

I mean who doesn't love bacon wrapped ANYTHING!  This recipe is far too simple, and far too delicious! 

|what you will need|

(makes 50 poppers)
+ 25 slices of bacon (do not pick the thick cut kind)
+ 25 jalapeno peppers (pick peppers that are shorter and not too long)
+ 2 packages of cream cheese (softened)
+ 50 toothpicks
+ salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
+ wire rack (optional)
+ 2 roasting pans

|how to|

{1} Cut your pepper length wise and remove the seeds and inner vein.  You can leave a few seeds if you like it spicy.

{2} Mix the cream cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a mixing bowl.  Using a knife, spread a nice even amount in the interior of the pepper half.

{3} Cut the bacon strips in half.  Wrap the bacon around the jalapeno peppers and secure the bacon onto the pepper with a toothpick.

{4} TIP: I found placing a wire rack in a roasting pan helped drain the bacon grease away from the peppers and made the bacon crispy.  Bake the peppers in a 400 F preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until bacon is nice and crispy and the cream cheese is slightly brown.
