Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

When I came across this recipe on YouTube, I had to make them! The fact that they weren’t the traditional jalapeño poppers, really caught my eye. So I decided to make them for a Super Bowl Party on Sunday and they were a hit!! 


20 Jalapeños, fresh

8 oz block of Cream Cheese, room temperature

3/4 cup Cheddar Cheese

1.5lbs Hickory Smoked Bacon

Cayenne pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder (optional)


* Preheat the oven to 375

* Mix together the cream cheese and cheddar in a bowl, season to your liking

* Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove the seeds/membrane

* Cut bacon strips in half either way

* Stuff each half with the cream cheese mixture, then wrap with bacon

* Place on wire rack over a baking sheet (without the rack they’ll cook sitting in bacon grease)

* Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon looks brown

* Cool for 5 minutes, then dig in 😉

Hope you enjoy,

    These are sooooo good! If you want to try a sweet version with bacon, try bacon wrapped dates. They are heavenly!
