- 4 large jalepeno peppers
- 8 bacon slices
- Vegetable oil for Frying
Ingredients (Cilantro-Lime Crema):
- ½ cup TROPICAL Crema Centroamericana
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro

Cut cheese into 1-inch chunks. Cut jalepenos crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Cut each bacon slice in half. On 6-inch-long wooden skewers, thread a piece of bacon with a cheese cube, jalepeno slice and a cheese cube, threading the bacon in between each piece. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Prepare Cilantro-Lime Crema: In small bowl, stir Crema, cilantro and lime juice. Set aside.
