Bacon-Wrapped Pimiento Cheese Jalapeños
Cutting out the ribs and seeds of the jalapeños will lessen their heat, but part of the fun of these bacon-wrapped wonders is the glow you get from the capsicum’s heat. If you want to keep these very mild, use the multi-colored bell peppers that you can find bagged at the grocery store.
