Reindeer Poppers – Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños with a Holiday Twist
I know this isn’t normally seen as a traditional Christmas Day meal, but it is in my house. Don’t get me wrong, Christmas Eve we do it up – turkey, ham and tamales; but Christmas Day we tend to break into a good carne asada (BBQ). Because Christmas Day is generally an all day event for us, it is also a great opportunity to bust out some of your favorite snacks! And these bacon wrapped jalapeños are a definite must, especially after we decided to make them even more Christmassy (they’re already red, white & green) by turning them into Reindeer Poppers. 😀
Not only are they super cute and festive, but they are also more savory than spicy, melt in your mouth, are super easy to make, and simple to scale for any sized party. It’s more about the method than exact measurements. Depending on the crowd you’re trying to feed, you’ll need to either add more peppers, cream cheese, bacon and black olives or use fewer of each.
Here’s how we make our famous Reindeer Poppers.
