Somehow easy to make yet difficult to stop eating, bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers are an amazing treat for any time of the year. They’re a great finger food that’s perfect for parties and get-togethers or just as an after-dinner delicacy. The sweet and spicy combination of bacon with jalapenos will bring you back again and again.

The first step is to cut the jalapenos. Although you can use the whole pepper, in this recipe, the seeds and pith are removed to reduce the amount of heat, but be sure to wear gloves at all times when handling this pepper. You want to cut a slit about 1/2 inch long in each pepper. If you like more heat, leave more of the white membrane attached. If you like milder, remove as much as possible.
