Imagine that-  jalapeno poppers with a heart of palm inside instead of cheese! These were so good. And bacon? Bacon always makes things better.

And let’s not forget the extra hearts of palm which add a new dimension to the guacamole. And in fact, you can make both  of these things  with one can of  hearts of palm–or if you are so inclined, make one or the other, or just grab an extra can and double down on the recipe. Because six will be happy if you are sharing, three will be happier if they get to grab a second one, and two can just about make lunch of this with a small salad on the side.

    • Yes, they are atypical- I started making chiles rellenos about twenty years ago using other things besides cheese, and it works in the popper size easily. The best part is the guack- I put the extra hearts of palm in there just to use it up and it had an amazing side effect- my leftovers didn’t oxidize. Next time I have some hearts of palm I am going to try using some of the liquid only with avocado to see if that was it or if it was actually the hearts of palm, but that could be interesting since the liquid isn’t sour like lime juice, so could add more to the guacamole and essentially have it be a preservative.
