These 1 ingredient cheese crackers are super easy and super tasty especially when your looking for that crunchy snack. If you ever loved cheez its you will totally love these.
You can do this with other cheeses as well but if your looking for a cheez it type cracker i recommend you use Sargento Ultra Thin cheese slices. If you do not get thin you will want to bake them up to 10 minutes longer depending on the cheese your using.
12 Medium Jalapenos
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 Lb Bacon
Monterey Jack Cheese
Cut off Jalapeno ends with a stem or you can leave the stem on and cut jalapeno in half long ways. Using a teaspoon starting at one end, scrape down the jalapeno removing the insides. Repeat this until all jalapenos are done.
If cream cheese is not softened at room temperature, you can microwave for 20 seconds until softened. Using a small spoon scoop cream cheese into each jalapeno using the back of the spoon to spread it evenly.
Once all jalapenos are filled with cream cheese, top with Monterey Jack Cheese and use a strip of bacon to wrap completely around the jalapeno leaving the end of the bacon strip at the bottom of the jalapeno. For medium size jalapenos you should be able to slice the bacon in half to wrap. For larger jalapenos, you will use the whole piece of bacon.
Pre-heat Air Fryer on 325 and set for 12 minutes. If you have an Air Fryer with a top and bottom tray, you will need to rotate the trays halfway in between so at 6 minutes make sure you do this so they cook evenly.
