  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Fill the jalapeno peppers with cream cheese. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning on top, then wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Arrange the wrapped jalapeno peppers in a single layer, face down on a broiler rack.
  3. Broil in the preheated oven until the bacon becomes crisp, 8 to 15 minutes on each side.

OK, rule of thumb, the smaller the Jalapeno, the hotter it is. Use gloves to seed the peppers, else you get the oils on your hands and hurt for some time. I cut strips of bacon in half before wr...

Super yummy and easy. For a lil' smoked flavor just broil them till bacon is getting cooked n then throw them on the gril for the last 5-8 minutes. It gives them a savory grilled flavor and is e...

These are wonderful! I made a double batch for a party last night and they were a huge hit! I could not find jalapeno bacon so I used pepper bacon instead and I made half of them using pineapple...
