Bacon Wrapped IPA Jalapeno Poppers

 “My Bacon Wrapped IPA Jalapeno Poppers Story”

There is nothing wrong with adding a little spice in your life, and that goes for food as well. I have always been drawn to spicy food since I was young. One of the first vegetables I have ever grown with my dad was a Biker Billy Hot Pepper bought from Burpee. I bought it because it looked cool and had aBacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers picture of a Biker holding a pepper on it. (Great advertising in my opinion). I got only one pepper off that plant and I think I checked on this pepper twice a day to see how it was growing. When the day finally came to take the first bite of this masterpiece of a pepper I had grown, I was highly disappointed. The taste was not what I expected. It was so hot that I thought my taste buds were going to disintegrate off my tongue. The amount of heat coming from this pepper was unbearably hot. However, it turned out to become a nice conversational piece and I often challenge my friends to try one without spitting it out. Needless to say, few succeeded.

            As I get older, my mind still wants spicy food but my stomach says no. I can never find my bottle of tums fast enough! The heat factor of my cooking had to decrease but not disappear. Enter Jalapenos. The perfect pepper for someone who likes a little spice in their food, but nothing too overwhelming.

Jalapenos

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno PoppersJalapenos are low on the Scoville Scale with a range of 3,000 to 10,000 heat units. The Komodo Dragon Chili pepper tops the scale with 855,000- 2,200,000 heat units. A big difference in comparison. The Jalapenos are also rich in Vitamin C, B6, E and K and contain a little protein and fiber. Its refreshing to know that I am getting some nice vitamins mixed in with the cheese and breading that I am encasing around the pepper .

Bacon Wrapped IPA Jalapeno Poppers Birth

 I feel a health kick coming on, but with the Super Bowl just ending and NCAA March Madness coming up, I can’t deny my favorite appetizers. Whenever I think of the perfect appetizer, bacon is the first ingredient that comes to mind. As Homer Simpson would say, “Mmmmmm BACON!!!”

Bacon Wrapped IPA Jalapeno PoppersIn my opinion, it simply makes everything taste better . For this recipe, I took the traditional jalapenos poppers and modified it a bit. Before breading the pepper, I wrapped that baby up with some delicious bacon and let it sit in 12 ounces of hoppy IPA beer for 30 minutes for added flavoring. Then  dredge in Panko bread crumbs and cook in a frying pan. The end result was a popper with a gooey cheesy inside, a delicious crust, and a nice taste of spice from the Jalapeno and saltiness from the bacon. I call this recipe Bacon Wrapped IPA Jalapeno Poppers and I recommend you make this, You will love it!
