Jalepeno Poppers With Bacon

These delicious little snacks are a wonderful party pleaser. The bacon adds a salty meatiness that combines perfectly with the spice of the jalapeno and the buttery crescent rolls. I added fresh cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper to the cream cheese to add extra depth of flavors.

Makes 16 Poppers

1 can of crescent rolls
1/2 lb of bacon
1 fresh jalapeno
1 cup soft cream cheese
2 cloves of garlic, minced
fresh cilantro, minced
salt & pepper


1) Prepare the bacon in the Marinade Express. It breaks down a lot of the fat and improves digestibiltiy. Process the bacon for only 4-5 minutes.
2) Cook bacon in a pan until crispy. Use a paper towel to blot off the grease. Cut the bacon into bite- sized pieces.
3) In a bowl mix the cream cheese with the garlic, fresh cilantro, salt and pepper.
4) Cut the jalapeno into bite-sized pieces, removing the seeds.
5) On a greased cookie sheet separate the crescent rolls. Use a pizza cutter to cut the crescents in half.

6) Assemble the poppers: Add a dollop of the cream cheese mixture, a piece of jalapeno and a piece of bacon. Bring the corners of the crescent rolls together. Fold in any edges that have the filling hanging out.
Note: I left the jalapeno out of a few poppers for the people who don't like spicy food.
7) Sprinkle the paprika on the poppers that have the jalapenos inside to differentiate the spicy ones versus the non-spicy poppers.
8) Bake the poppers at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
9) Serve and enjoy!
