Bacon Wrapped, Sausage Stuffed, Jalapenos

Yep, you heard right, and the title says it all.  These little monsters can either be 80/20 paleo or the whole 9 yards, depending on one ingredient, but we’ll get to that in a minute.  These are great little snackers that will serve you well at your next party, BBQ, or whatever.  I wouldn’t exactly say they’re good for you, but just about all the ingredients fall into the paleo realm.
