Kick 2017 out the door and welcome 2018 in with a bit of spice and a whole lotta pop. These poppers are easy to make (just in case you got into the champagne a bit early) and filled with the best stuff: cheese and bacon, and more cheese and bacon, and still more cheese and bacon. Goodbye 2017, and hello flavor.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve jalapeños and scrape out all seeds and ribs with a spoon. Removing ribs and seeds reduces spice level. Be sure to wash hands, utensils, and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

    On a separate cutting board, cut bacon across its length into 1/4" slices.

  2. 2

    Cook the Bacon

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon. Flip occasionally until crisp, 8-10 minutes.

    Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.

  3. 3

    Make the Filling

    In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine Neufchâtel, cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, panko, and bacon.

  4. 4

    Fill the Peppers

    Fill jalapeño peppers with filling and place on prepared baking sheet.

  5. 5

    Bake the Poppers

    Bake until cheese browns, 13-18 minutes. Serve immediately, and Happy New Year!
