Never, in my entire life, have I been able to tolerate the heat of a jalapeño.
Well, I evaded that heat until a couple of years ago.
At an annual birthday, multi-day camp out at Lake Sommerville, the husband of one of my best friends made these WONderful jalapeño wraps, and I consumed – ooh – a LOT of them. Of course, that consumption caused another post, but I digress.
ANYway, this fella went through the time consuming process of slicing and gutting each jalapeño, filling each half with cream cheese then
wrapping it with a slice of bacon and securing the bacon in place with a toothpick. All this followed by smoking on the grill for 3 hours.
He offered me this hot treat, I accepted, and the rest is culinary history in my home.
My love of wrapped jalapeños led me to another simple recipe, also including cream cheese.
While walking thru a popular, humongous roadside gas station, featuring a smiling beaver, I tried a sample of cream cheese dip and it was delicious! It was also very expensive.
And finally, dip your chip and enjoy!!
Any food out there you’ve grown to love?
