Yields 24 stuffed pepper halves. Prep time 10 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes

For this recipe you will need:

  • 12 medium jalapeno peppers

Wash peppers, then cut in half lengthwise and take out seeds and ribs.  You might want to wear gloves while you do this, or put oil on your hands, then wash them with soap after your done. I found using a small spoon or even a grapefruit spoon works really well for getting the ribs and seeds out.  You want to make sure you get all the seeds out because that is where the heat is, if you like spicy then keep the ribs in.   Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl Recipes.

In a mixing bowl add the cream cheese, shredded cheese and ranch seasoning.  Mix well and spoon into jalapeno halves, place  cooked bacon on top.  Put on baking sheet, and cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Quick tip *** I found that if you put them on a metal baking rack the peppers will stay upright during the cooking process and not tip over.  When they tip over the cheese tends to slide out, so this helps prevent that.  Make sure you put the rack on top of a cookie sheet for easier transport and clean up.

Jalapeno Bacon Popper Dip

 

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon, a quick and easy dip that is warm and cheesy and will have your party guest asking for MORE, #PoppersDip, #JalapenoDip, #Party, #Recipe

I had a “girls night” with my cousins this weekend, so it gave me the chance to whip up a new dip. It turned out amazing and even my kids liked it! As my 4 year old said, “Mom these spicy pickles are good”. The best part about this dip is you can have a great flavor of the Jalapeno peppers with out the heat.  If you want to spice it up, add more peppers or leave some of the seeds in, but this mild version was perfect for my family.

Jalapeno Bacon Popper Dip

You will need:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix
  • 2 jalapeno peppers  diced(take the seeds out) if you want it hotter 4 peppers
  • 1/3 cup cooked and crumbled bacon  (save a bit back for garnish)
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon parsley

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon, a quick and easy dip that is warm and cheesy and will have your party guest asking for MORE, #PoppersDip, #JalapenoDip, #Party, #Recipe

This is the fastest and easiest dip, but taste like you worked on it for hours.  Mix all the ingredients together, till well blended.  Spread on the bottom of a 9×9 baking dish, top with crumbled bacon.  Bake in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes till edges are golden brown.

TIP: I like to bake mine in two smaller dishes (reduced cooking time a few minutes) I like the dip best when HOT and cheesy right out of the oven.  If I cook it in two pans at different times I can put one out at the start of the party, and pull the second one out once the first one is gone.

Cookie Salad - Yummy Side Dish Or Dessert

Cookie Salad – Yummy Side Dish Or Dessert

I had a family bbq this weekend, and had to come up with a dish to bring with little notice.  Luckily, we have been making this salad for years, and it is always a hit wherever you bring it!

cookie salad, #easyrecipes, #recipes, #easy, #jellosalad, #cookies, #pudding, #bananas, #mandarinoranges, #food

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 small box of vanilla pudding
  • 1 small container cool whip
  • 1 large jar mandarin oranges drained
  • 3-4 medium bananas sliced
  • 1 package pecan sandies cookies (If you have a nut allergy, you can get just sandies without the pecans)

Begin by mixing your buttermilk with your vanilla pudding mix and whisk until combined. Once combined add your container of cool whip.

Gently fold in your sliced bananas and drained oranges.

Now crush your cookies in a ziploc baggie.  They don’t need to be super fine, it is ok for there to be some chunks.  Once they are crushed, pour them into the salad.

Mixture will be fairly runny.  Cover and cool in the fridge to let it set up.  If you won’t be serving this soon, you can wait to put the bananas in until you are ready to serve.  Makes a large sized dish and serves several descent sized servings.  Can also be made lighter by using sugar free or light cool whips, and pudding mixes.

  • 1/4 C. fresh blueberries
  • 1/3 C. old fashioned oats (quick oats will get really soggy)

  • 1­-2 tbs. of honey to taste
  • 1 8 oz. jelly jar w/ lid

Directions ­

1. Add the oatmeal, Greek yogurt, honey and milk to the 8 oz. jelly jar. Put the lid on and shake well to mix all the ingredients.

You eat it chilled.  If your in a rush just grab a jar out of the refrigerator and eat it as an on the go breakfast.
