These Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Smokies have a delicious sweet flavor with a hint of a spicy kick to them! We make these often and they are great to use up some of the peppers from the garden.
We have a good amount of jalapeno peppers in the garden. Our pepper plants did extremely good this year producing! I like to use fresh produce from the garden whenever possible.
Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Smokies
1 pkg Lil Smokies ( 13 oz)
1 pkg bacon (16 oz)
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp chili powder
jalapeno peppers (seeded and cut into slices)
Spread 1 cup of brown sugar evenly in the bottom of your Crockpot. Cut bacon strips into thirds. Wrap 1 Lil Smokie and a jalapeno slice with a piece of bacon. Repeat until all the Lil Smokies are wrapped and place them in the Crockpot. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of brown sugar over the
Smokies. Then sprinkle the chili powder on top. Cook in the Crock pot on High for 3 hours or until bacon is cooked completely.
*Add a bigger slice of jalapeno if you want more of a spicy taste.
