Stuffed Jalapeno

***Makes 2 dozen***


12 fresh jalapenos

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 T. dry ranch dressing mix

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 cup shredded cheese (I like Colby Jack)

6 slices bacon


***Preheat oven to 400 degrees***

1. Slice the tops off of the jalapenos.  Slice them in half and dig the seeds and membrane out.

2. Mix cream cheese, ranch dressing, garlic powder and shredded cheese.  Stuff into each jalapeno.

3. Slice bacon both length and width-wise.  I like to use my kitchen scissors for this.  Much easier than a knife.  Wrap each bacon strip around a stuffed jalapeno and secure with a toothpick.

4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until bacon is crispy.  (Can finish off under the broiler, too.  Just keep an eye on it!)
