Chef Becky’s Bacon & Corn Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

Bacon is one of my favorite ingredients! In this recipe, I stuff large jalapenos with a sinful mixture of cream cheese, bacon, corn, ranch dressing, and spices…and topped with a crunchy seasoned breadcrumb mixture…. Bake and serve for your next tailgater!
