Jalapeño Poppers

Feel like indulging?  Entertaining?  These are always a hit!  There are lots of Jalapeños Poppers you can buy in stores but they are usually breaded and full of unwanted ingredients.  I always grow Jalapeños in my garden every year and when you can make it with those fresh ones they are totally dynamite! 

  • 5 - 10 Jalapeños (depending on how many you want to make) halved and seeds removed
  • 1 cup Soft Goat Cheese
  • 2 - 3 Slices of Nitrate Free Organic Bacon halved and sliced
  • Handful of Arugula (optional)

Once you halve and remove seeds from the jalapeño spoon in some goat cheese and level.  Wrap with a bacon piece and spiral around the jalapeño.  Bake in a 350 F preheated oven for 35 - 40 mins.  (Depending on the size of jalapeño and thickness of bacon).  Then serve on a bed of arugula!  I like to put a few arugula leaves on top of my popper (but thats totally optional).  My kids LOVE these!

***Juicy Tip - Jalapeños are a rich source of vitamin C.  Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps prevent damage from free radicals, rogue molecules that can cause cell damage in your body. Jalapenos are also a source of vitamin A, which supports skin and eye health.  Enjoy!  Live Juicy!
