Cheesy Stuffed Jalapenos

With football season here, it is time for all the yummy snacks and appetizers to debut. There is nothing more enjoyable than watching football and eating, right??

With this past weekend being NFL kickoff, I whipped up these jalapenos and they were a HUGE hit!! Stuffed with two cheese, spices, bread crumbs, and of course, BACON…..these are mouth watering!!

When making these, I always use Hormel bacon bits because not only does it make these quick and easy to put together, but it is affordable and 100% real bacon! You can not only use it in this recipe, but on top of salads, soups, casseroles, and more! No mess in my kitchen from having to cook/crumble the bacon, deal with the grease, etc. I definitely recommend Hormel!!

In fact, Hormel has several different products that they offer!! Everything from chunk chicken, to Lloyd’s meats, delicious side dishes, etc. Be sure to check out their website for more recipes, savings/offers, and even to sign up for their newsletter!!
