Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers Wrapped in Bacon

 

We are prepping our garden beds for our summer gardens and I am really excited this year.  Usually we focus on tomatoes (I am sure you can see our love of tomatoes by all the recipes that are posted!).

Last summer we started really loving the different types of peppers that we great.  We grew Jalapenos, Shisito, Serrano, and Anaheim peppers.

Peppers make such a tasty snack or starter to any summer meal.

Here is one of my favorite things to do with Jalapenos.  I make these for potlucks or to bring to the beach as a snack.  They are soooo worth the effort to make.  I have been dreaming about these peppers and will put in extra jalapeno plants so I can share with my friends.
