These beauties are so easy to make, my cat could do it!
I enjoy a good popper every now and then, but sometimes I don't want them fried. Weird, I know.
I get like that (all wishy-washy) when it comes to fried foods. Sometimes I really crave something...anything fried. Thank goodness that craving doesn't overtake me too often (well, often enough...), and if I don't feel like something fried, I try to figure out how not to fry it and get a similar satisfaction from the dish.
You won't miss the frying on these, trust me...

Three Ingredient Jalapeño Poppers
20 whole fresh Jalapenos, about 2-3 inches long
2 bricks of softened cream cheese1 pound thin-sliced bacon, sliced in half
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut jalapeños in half, length-wise. With a spoon, remove the seeds and the ribs.
Fill each half with softened cream cheese. Wrap the jalapeños with a slice of bacon. (You can use a toothpick to secure if needed)
Layer them on a baking sheet and cook in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. If, after 20 minutes, the bacon doesn’t look brown enough, feel free to turn on the broiler for a couple of minutes just to finish them off, but keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
