food to set your hands on fire

I'm sure most of you have heard of The Pioneer Woman. If not, please introduce yourself.  Immediately.

I love her site.  She is so funny.  Her recipes are to die for. Plus, most of the time I can find all the ingredients.  That is what matters most!

She has a recipe for bacon-wrapped jalapeño thingies.  I can confirm that they are really tasty.

I made some last night to surprise Jorge when he got home from work.

Other than the fact that they cause immense pain to my fingers and hands from working with the jalapeño, the come together quite easily.

Artist's rendition of a hand on fire.
 Just cut open the peppers and scoop out all the seeds and stuff that causes hand burns.

I bought this nifty little tool that does make the job of scooping out the insides a little bit faster.

Then fill with cream cheese and wrap with bacon.

Use a toothpick to secure everything and put in the oven.

Now use this time to nurse your burning hands and fingers.  Or, you could be smart and use some type of rubber gloves.  Or, just don't make them at all.  That will definitely eliminate the pain involved.

Take them out of the oven and enjoy!

They are really good and easy to make.  Try them!

Ooh! I love those bacon-wrapped jalapeño peppers. I like to add grated Manchego cheese to mine. Yummmmm! :)

Are your fingers still burning? Wash your hands with soap and baking soda! It is the best and takes away the burning sensation ASAP. :)

I once tried to make "salsa Mexicana" and removed all those tiny little seeds from the chili peppers with my fingers. I had NO idea that later on, my fingers would be on fire...just like you said. They were red and throbbing the whole night until I decided to sleep with my hand in a bowl of yoghurt.

I'm so happy to see you are able to leave comments on my blog! THANKS! :)

I also love that Pioneer Woman is always trying to get me to leave comments so I can win a kitchenaid mixer or an iPad or something. I haven't won yet, day? Maybe?
