  • 8 Jalapeños
  • 8 Oz Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 8 Slices Bacon not thick cut


  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Cut the jalapeños in half, lengthwise. Remove the seeds and ribs.

  • Divide the cheese mixture between the jalapeño halves.
  • Cut the bacon slices in half. Wrap each popper with the bacon and secure the ends with a toothpick.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and bacon begins to get crispy.


Cover your hands in plastic baggies to keep the spicy juices off your hands when removing the seeds.
If your jalapeños are small you may need 2 to 4 more, and additional bacon to wrap them.
Make sure to use regular thin sliced bacon, not thick cut.
