Sometimes I find it refreshing to depart from our usual routine and serve a variety of small bites for dinner instead of a normal meal with a main dish. I made these bacon-wrapped, cream-cheese stuffed jalapenos from Brown Eyed Baker last week as part of our Superbowl small bites meal. I really am not a fan of jalapenos, but I like bacon and I like cream cheese, so I thought I’d give it a try. They were so good! I didn’t follow the recipe exactly (surprise!). Before stuffing the jalapenos, I mixed the softened cream cheese with smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Also, I used turkey bacon in place of regular bacon because it’s (slightly) healthier and we had some on hand. But, let’s be real, these would’ve been so much better with real bacon.
