Recipe Tips

  • Cook bacon ahead to save time, or buy precooked bacon, which can be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.
  • Jalapeño cream cheese spread can be found in the cream cheese section of the grocery store. If you have trouble finding it, substitute 6 oz regular cream cheese mixed with 2 teaspoons seeded and diced jalapeños.
