24 Tater Tots, thawed
2 jalapeno peppers, sliced into thin rounds
12 slices bacon, cut in halves
Canola oil for frying
1. Pour about 2-3 inches of canola oil into a heavy deep pot (a Dutch oven works great for this) and heat to 350 degrees.
2. While the oil is heating, wrap each Tot in a slice of bacon, tucking a jalapeno slice inside. Spear everything together with a wooden toothpick.
3. Carefully lower the Tots into the oil with a metal slotted spoon or spider. Cook until bacon is done, about 2 minutes. Remove, drain on paper towels and serve!
