Delicious bounty



We have harvested hundreds of jalapenos from the garden this summer. No lie. I know that occasionally I have the tendency to exaggerate. However, we really, really have harvested hundreds of those suckers this year.





So over the weekend I threw together a little recipe I will heretofore call Cheesy Jalapeno Bake.

I cleaned out the seeds from the insides and then steamed them until they were soft. Then laid them flat in a baking dish. Then I laid strips of bacon over the top and broiled them until the bacon was crispy. Then melted a generous amount of cheddar cheese over the top.






We all ate them so fast it was as though they never existed.





Arriba!

That sounds like a wonderful recipe...were they still really hot without the seeds?

Echoing the post above me...
How about the heat?
My rebellious stomach doesn't handle very much spice...
Am I out of luck on this one?

Jes said...

delish! i MUST try it :)...but yes, i'm wondering, too...are they still very spicy without the seeds?

Sarah said...

Que sabrosa!

That looks like an easier version of Pioneer Woman's recipe, where she stuffs them with cream cheese and wraps a bacon strip around them and grills them.

Either way, I might have to head to the grocery store for some jalapenos--only we'd probably leave the seeds in!

¡¡Andale, ándale, chica!!

So your children eat hot food? That recipe makes my mouth hot. If you promise it's not any hotter than black pepper then maybe I'll try the recipe.

My husband would love this dish. He eats his peppers right off the bush. Mine have to be cooked. Tasty sounding recipe.

That looks SOOOOO good!! It would be good with a drizzle of ranch over top too. ;-)

I love that you used the word heretofore. I can't say I've ever used that.

Amy said...

I'm going to have to try it! Sounds delish!

OoOo I just made pepper jelly for the first time and it was a LOT of work but it turned out so good! It uses up a bunch of peppers!

Must have been a banner year for jalapenos all around. I got tons from just a few plants. I've had the cream cheese stuffed jalapenos with the bacon wrapped around them. YUM-MO! This looks far easier.

Um, yum! However, most of my family hates peppers of any kind. I am quite sure I would end up having to eat the whole thing by myself!
