Cooking Instructions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. 2Brown ground turkey in a medium skillet over medium heat, season with salt and pepper to taste, drain any fat off, and set aside.

  3. 3I have Anolon skillet and I absolutely love them! They are made of heavy duty materials, they heat evenly, and they even have a lifetime warranty

  4. 4Bring a big pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat

  5. 5Dump jalapenos into the water and boil for 2-3 minutes

  6. 6Remove from water, cut tops off, cut in half length-wise (see images) deseed, and set aside

  7. 7In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese and browned ground turkey, and stir to combine.

  8. 8Spoon cream cheese filling into the jalapenos.

  9. 9Wrap each one in turkey bacon, and place on a baking sheet.

  10. 10One other trick that I use is I line my baking sheets with a silicone baking mats They make clean up quick and easy.

  11. 11Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

  12. 12Turn oven on to broil on high, and broil until bacon is crisp (5 mins)

  13. 13Dip in pepper jelly and enjoy!
