Sorry to be a pest....Is the bacon raw or cooked? You say to put all ingredients in a food processor and blend well. However, it looks like you can see the bacon and pieces of jalapeno. Is it just a one/two pulse? I prefer seeing the bacon and pepper as opposed to everything mashed together. Thank you again and sorry for all the questions.

Do these brown? Do you spray the chicken with cooking oil perhaps? Thanks for all your great recipes. I made your lightened up mac & cheese and it was a hit. So much so, that I didn't even get 1 macaroni on my dish or in my belly!! The family devoured it.
