Jalapeno Poppers

I can't cook. Anyone that's around me for longer than three months knows this. I do try, but I honestly can't stand cooking, so me sharing a recipe is a huge deal. Plus, I'm a picky eater, so the things I eat, that I've cooked are rare. Some of it is a failure, but I am getting better with knowing what I can and can't cook. Here's one of the things I actually enjoy making and cooking. And, plus side, they are easy to do.

Jalapeno Poppers

What you'll need:
  1. 20-30 jalapeno/poblano/Anaheim peppers (seeded and cut lengthwise) **use gloves for this**
  2. 3-4 (8oz) blocks of cream cheese (room temperature)
  3. 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  4. 1 teaspoon of pepper
  5. 1 teaspoon of salt (to taste)
  6. 1 tablespoon of jalapeno juice (this adds some additional spice to the mix)
  7. 2-3 jalapeno seeds (if you want it spicier)
Mix together in a bowl and fill each jalapeno shell. Be sure to overfill to your desired amount. Bake for 20-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven, or until the tops are browned. 

*Additionally, you can add bacon bits on top, or shredded cheese in the last two minutes of baking
