Jalapeño poppers are an essential party food. They fit right in with pigs in a blanket, mini pizzas and other hors d'oeuvres -- the reasons you show up to the party in the first place.

With each bite, melted cheesy goodness oozes out, complementing the crisp crunch of the bacon shell. You could make these for a party if you'd like, or you could just make an entire batch for your personal consumption. Just one popper provides a well-rounded serving of three major food groups: Veggies, dairy and bacon. Find the full recipe at Ohbiteit.com.
