A Texas Vacation Cabin Guest Favorite – Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos!

Texas vacation cabins

There’s no surer sign of warm weather in Texas than the smell of delicious food being cooked over an open fire. The days are getting longer, and you’ll find yourself enjoying the mild days and evenings outside cooking and eating while warm breezes carry the aroma from the grill to passersby. While you relax and unwind on your vacation, try a laid-back outdoor meal or two during your stay at Mill Creek Ranch Resort. It’s so easy to do, whether you stay in one of our Texas vacation cabins with a grill or you’ve bought a cottage with an outdoor hearth. Isn’t it amazing how simple food can taste so good when you cook it outdoors? No restaurant needed, just bring a few ingredients and keep them in your fully-equipped kitchen during your stay. Here’s a favorite recipe of our Texas vacation cabins guests:

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

You’ll need:

6 fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced in half lengthwise and seeded
1 package cream cheese (8 ounces) (strawberry flavor is fantastic)
12 slices bacon

Preheat your grill to high heat. Spread the cream cheese onto the pepper halves. Wrap the bacon around the cheese-stuffed peppers and secure with a toothpick. Place them on the grill and cook until the bacon is crispy. Enjoy!

Note: You may want to wear gloves when slicing and seeding the peppers to avoid burning your hands.
