Although this dish is easy to make, it looks impressive. It will seem like you know your way around the kitchen, whether you do or not!

Start by cooking El Popular Chorizo Original, without casings. In a bowl, combine the shredded Mexican Queso Fresco and softened cream cheese. For the jalapeño, cut a slit and remove the membranes and the seeds. It is easiest to use the back of a teaspoon. (It is a good idea to use gloves when handling jalapeños.) With the same spoon, stuff the peppers half full with the cheese mixture. Next, sprinkle the chorizo on top of the cheese mixture.

Lastly, wrap the bacon around the jalapeños. Secure with a toothpick. Bake for 8-10 minutes, making sure to rotate the peppers every 2 minutes. Done! Of course, quality plays a role in the outcome of your dish. Make sure to use El Popular Chorizo brand for the best tasting Mexican sausage.
