Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

I have been really good with the diet and so pleased with my results. Brian has been working much later than normal so our meals through the week are enjoyed at separate times. Since he is home for the weekends I really like to have a great meal we can enjoy together. Both of us have a love affair with spicy food and bacon. This side dish or appetizer fits into those categories beautifully! However, it is not overly spicy. The cream cheese and honey play as a wonderful counterpart to the jalapeno's spice.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers
Serves 2 (can be adjusted to easily any amount)
4 Jalapenos cut in half, seeds and membrane removed
4 oz cream cheese (half a small dub)
4 pieces of thin cut bacon, cut in half
Drizzle of Honey

Preheat the oven to 400. I found the easiest way to spread the cream cheese inside the jalapeno is to put it in the corner of a freezer ziploc bag and snip off the ends. Perfect pastry bag as well ;) Drizzle a small amount of honey down the center of the cream cheese. Wrap in bacon and place on a baking dish. Bake for about 10 minutes or until your bacon is done.

*Next time I might add some monterey jack. If you add something to this recipe let me know how it turns out :)
