Hanging out watching football today? Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

I dearly love jalapeno poppers, but I like the breaded kind stuffed with cream cheese. The stuffed and breaded style are a pain to make and also quite messy so admittedly I'd rather purchase them in the frozen food sections than make those by hand. I also love bacon - so these unbreaded jalapeno poppers are a yummy appetizer when I want to make something quick and easy that is almost-but-not-quite as awesome as the time-intensive breaded version! Ha.


Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

20 jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded
1-2 boxes cream cheese, softened
1-2 packages premium bacon, cut into halves

Make sure jalapenos are halved and seeded. May need to wear rubber gloves when doing this to prevent the oil soaking into your fingertips and burning your eyes or lips when you accidentally touch them later!

Stuff each half with cream cheese and wrap with a half piece of bacon. Cook in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees until bacon in done. I like to broil them under the broiler for about 3 minutes to crisp the bacon.

You can adjust this recipe to make as many or as little as you need.Print Friendly and PDF
