stuffed jalapeno


Stuffed pretzel appreciation post.  Jalapeño stuffed pretzel and Cream cheese stuffed pretzel. Unfortunately, neither pretzel are available in any of the parks.

Jalapeno cheese stuffed pretzel from Block & Hans located in Epcot’s American Adventure.

Salmon stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon with spinach cream sauce. 

Upon my hubby’s persistent request for a repeat of the salmon cakes, I came up with these. The salmon filling is the same as the salmon cakes but I added the jalapeno seeds in the mixture for more heat. I then rolled the filling part on coconut flour and garlic powder mix. I wrapped each stuffed jalapeno in ½ of nitrite free and sugar free bacon then place it in the oven for 20 mins at 350 F or until the bacon is cooked. 
The sauce is coconut sour cream (½ cup coconut cream + 1 tbsp coconut vinegar). Place in blender then add a handful of baby spinach, a pinch of cilantro, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Blend until pureed.

Jalapeno Bacon Popper

1lb of jalapenos

16oz of softened cream cheese

2 cups of shredded colby jack cheese

1 lb regular cut bacon, sliced into 3rds.

Preheat oven to 375-

Cut jalapenos in half, length-wise. 

With a spoon, remove the seeds and white membrane leaving a nice “boat” to stuff with the good stuff.

Mix softened cream cheese and colby jack cheese until well incorporated. Fill each jalapeno “boat” with the cream cheese mixture. 

Wrap jalapeno with bacon pieces.

Bake on a pan at 375-degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
