Bacon Ranch Jalapeño Poppers
halved lengthwise and seeded
vegan "ricotta" cheese (like Kite Hill), ricotta cheese, or Herbed Cashew Cheese (recipe below)
RANCH Spice Blend
cut in half
Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then place a wire baking rack on it.
In a small bowl, mix the ricotta cheese with the spice blend.
Stuff the jalapeños with the herb cheese, then wrap a piece of bacon around each one.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the bacon is crispy.
Let cool slightly, then serve with ranch dressing on the side.
