Bacon Wrapped Cheesy Jalapenos

There has been a momentary lapse in baking around my apartment. Its due to a combination of wedding planning and school work. Just before the semester began my research was recently published (yay!) and there has been a surprisingly large amount of press buzz around it. I know, press buzz? But seriously, the research has huge implications for early autism detection which makes it a big draw for the media. Its great that we are getting so much attention (its extremely rare and difficult to get this type of attention) but its taken a lot of work and time.

So, instead of a new recipe, I'm going back into my photo bank to find something that I made a few months ago but never got around to posting. I present to you...

I couldn't get a picture before one was eaten!

Bacon Wrapped Cheesy Jalapenos!

15- 20 small jalapenos
8 oz light cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any other cheese you prefer)
1 packet of vegetable soup mix
1 package of bacon

Mix the cheeses together with the soup mix and let it sit for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, while wearing gloves, cut off the top of the jalapenos, and slice them down the side. Remove most of the seeds and membrane (the more that is left, the hotter these will be). Using a spoon or a pastry bag, squeeze the cheese mixture into the jalapenos. Wrap each stuffed jalapeno in a slice of bacon (or half if you have more peppers than bacon slices), and secure it with a toothpick. Place on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet (they get oozey and messy) and bake at 375 for ~15 minutes or until the bacon is cooked. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving.

These can be made ahead of time and baked just before serving. They're a great treat for game-day!
