Jalapeno Poppers

We have a tradition in our family that on your birthday you get to pick whatever you want for breakfast and dinner. This year my 13 year old daughter requested "Shrimp Taco's" and "Jalepeno Poppers", neither of which I had ever made before. I was a little worried about how her big birthday dinner was going to turn out. I figured out the "Shrimp Taco's" but was sweating the Jalepeno Poppers. My nieces mom saved the day, literally. She was so sweet and sent me this AMAZING recipe to try out. I loved it. I think between my daughter and I we ate 24 poppers, yes...I pigged out a little, but I couldn't get enough of them and I have craved them ever since...which means that I am going to make them again SOON!

Jalapeno Poppers

This is a very easy recipe and so extremely tasty!!

Whole fresh jalapenos, about 15-20

2 pkg.'s cream cheese
1tbsp lime juice
1 C. frozen corn
1 lb. crab meat (I used cooked, crumbled bacon and it was awesome...but I am defiantly
going to try the crab, I just didn't have any on hand this time)
Cayenne pepper
green onions
tortilla chips ( I used "Frito" chips, because thats what I had on hand)

Cut the peppers length wise making a boat, taking out the seeds, Don't forget gloves! Mix the cream cheese, lime juice, corn and meat together; add the green onions and cayenne pepper and stir well. Fill the peppers, crunch the chips and sprinkle on top. Bake at 450 degrees (or grill them) until the peppers are tender. I cooked mine for 5 minutes and then checked them every few minutes after that. The longer you cook them, the hotter they seem to get.
Seriously, if you love Jalapeno's...you have to try these...and even if you don't, you never know, these might convince you otherwise!

Happy Cooking~
