- 10 fresh jalapeños, sliced in half lengthwise, white membrane and seeds removed
- 10 slices of bacon, cut in half
- 1/2 pound (230 g) of loose pork sausage or other seasoned ground meat
Heat oven to 400 ºF
Use your fingers to stuff meat into each jalapeño half.
Snugly wrap a piece of bacon around the pepper. Secure it with a toothpick.
You can put the peppers directly on baking sheet or pan, but the fat that drips off the bacon will make them a little greasy. To avoid this, set a cooling rack on top of a baking pan and put the pepper on the rack.
Bake for 25 minutes, until bacon is crispy.
