Make the Bacon Jalapeno Jam:

To get started, you’ll need to make the bacon jalapeno jam. I recommend making a big batch ahead of time so you can assemble these wraps quickly. This jam is also delicious on my blue cheese burgers!

  • 1/2 pound green jalapeño peppers
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

How to Make the Spicy Bacon Jam

  • Remove stems and seeds from peppers and slice thinly.
  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the peppers and sauté until they are softened. Next add the sugar, vinegar and water. Bring to a boil.
  • Add cooked bacon. Lower heat and simmer about 30 minutes, until the mixture is thick and syrupy. Season to taste.
