Jalapeno Poppers

These are the perfect snacks for football Sundays. Yes, I do know that the Superbowl was more than 2 months ago. That just means we are 2 months closer to the start of the 2011 football season. Nevermind that there may be a lockout. I probably sound like I am pretty excited for football season, right? Well, that is because I am. I love football season for 1 reason and 1 reason only. It is the perfect opportunity for me to make all kinds of appetizers!

And these jalapeno poppers are on the menu every Sunday during football season. We are big Chicago Bears fans around here so we like to call them “Pepper’s Poppers”. I even like to think that making “Pepper’s Poppers” on gamedays bring the Bears, and specifically Julius Peppers, good luck. I did not make them for that unfortunate playoff loss against the Packers. Obviously, if I had made my “Pepper’s Poppers” the Bears would have been in the Superbowl instead of the Packers!

These poppers have a few things going for them:

Super easy to make!
Spicy!!
Bacon!!!

Everything tastes better wrapped in bacon, right?
