Maple Jalapenos

Sweet & spicy! Easy to make too. These disappeared off the plate faster than any other appetizer I had out. Everyone loved them. You can cook them longer to make them milder if you aren't a big fan of spice. This recipe makes 50 but you can cut it in half. You really can't go wrong with these ingredients.

25 jalapenos (look for thicker ones that will hold a filling)
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened (we used low fat)
1 cup (4oz) crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 lb bacon strips, cooked & crumbled (we used real bacon bits to save time)
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Beat the cream cheese, feta cheese and syrup in a small bowl until smooth. Spoon into the pepper halves.

Place the pepper halves on 2 greased baking pans. Top with the bacon and then sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for 20 minutes for spicy, 30 minutes for medium and 40 minutes for mild.
