Need to get more Vitamin C? Try eating more peppers. It’s been said that peppers have more vitamin C than oranges. There is even a hot pepper diet. Vitamin C and bacon, count me in!!!
- 1 dozen large Jalapeno Peppers
- 6 strips Bacon sliced in half lengthwise
- 1 package (8 ozs) softened Neufchatel Cheese (can use regular Cream Cheese also)
- Wooden Toothpicks
Cut the stems off the peppers and deseed and core them. Using a paring knife push the softened cheese into the peppers. Wrap a slice a bacon around the outside of the peppers and secure with a toothpick. If you are grilling you can grill these on the BBQ using a vegetable screen so the peppers don’t fall between the grills. Grill until the bacon is crispy and the peppers have a nice brown to them. I also broil these in my oven. Put the stuffed bacon wrapped peppers on a cookie sheet. Set the oven to broil and place the peppers under the broiler until the bacon is crispy and the peppers are browned. These are a big hit for sports fans!
