Stuff and wrap these jalapeños the day before your party, then pop them in the oven about 15 minutes before your guests arrive to great them with a warm, tantalizing treat. Remove the seeds from the jalapeños if you want a dish with less heat.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 8

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
  • 4 tbsp Onion, Diced White
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 cups Baby Spinach
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups Cheese, Colby-Jack
  • 8 Jalapeno Peppers, Hot
  • 8 slice raw bacon

DIRECTIONS

1 Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over high heat. Sauté onion for 2-to-3 minutes until translucent. Add garlic and sauté for an additional 30 seconds.
2 Add the baby spinach and sauté for 3-to-5 minutes just until the spinach starts to wilt.
3 Stir in the softened cream cheese, stirring gently until completely dissolved. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
4 Gently stir in the shredded cheese. Let cool completely.
5 While the spinach filling cools, cut fresh jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and veins. 6. Rinse with cold water; pat dry.
6 Preheat oven to 425°F. Fill each jalapeño with the cooled spinach filling. Wrap jalapeños with bacon. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake at 425°F for 15-to-18 minutes until the bacon is golden and crispy.
7 Remove from oven and serve immediately.
