OMGosh~~I’ve done what I thought was super impossible and stuffed something totally new into an innocent Jalapeño!
I didn’t think I could do it, but here we are!
Toasty Tot filled, Bacon wrapped Cheesy Pepper Poppers are now a reality, and ready to grace your lips in under 30 minutes!
I have to say that this combo is SO amazingly delicious, and unique that they were literally gone faster than it took to make them! Before I knew it I was back in the kitchen making MORE! And writing down the recipe as fast as I possibly could for everyone that was begging me for it..lol. 🙂
~They ARE that good!
What you’ll need for 30 Poppers:
15 fresh Jalapeños
1 cup Shredded Cheddar
30 Tater Tots..frozen and semi defrosted
Slice and core out the Jalapeños
Fill each of them with some Shredded Cheese and top each one with two Tater Tots…
Now wrap them in half a slice of Bacon. You can use a whole slice of Bacon per each one for more, but you’ll need 2 lbs. of Bacon! I’d go with the “more Bacon” route..! 🙂
Bake them on a baking sheet with a rack at 400 degrees for approx. 40 minutes, or until the Bacon is golden and crispy!
Let them cool~
Serve them only to people that you want around for a while…they won’t be going anywhere for a long time..lol
Be sure to grab some for you…
And try to hurry, these go FAST…
Dig in! ~Enjoy! 🙂
