I wouldn’t especially call this a recipe. In fact, I intended to only share it on my Instagram (my favorite social media platform by far, on which I share “flash recipes” and little flavor hacks like this one).
I had something similar (chunks of tuna and avocado wrapped in bacon) that was wonderfully simple at a Paleo potluck I recently attended, and it inspired me to play around with wrapping stuff in one of my favorite things: bacon. Seriously, bacon is one of those things that I eat more of than I intend to, every time! It’s the short-cut to delicious.
Anyway, instead of leaving my blog readers completely out of the party I decided to share my technique for the jalapeño poppers here! I don’t know if everyone calls these “poppers”, but back in Texas where this Lone Star gal is from, jalapeño poppers are jalapeño peppers that have been hollowed out, stuffed with a mixture of cheese, spices, and sometimes ground meat, breaded and deep-fried. They are sinful and so delicious it’ll make you cry. They were a more frequent cheat day indulgence once upon a time than was good for me, and I had a wicked craving for them on the day of the potluck. So, I switched the bell pepper strips for jalapeños here and I’m glad I did. The bit of heat that the roasted peppers give is just perfect.Print
