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!
