With an over abundance of jalapeno peppers in the garden this was the recipe I chose. But, I did however modify the recipe a bit. I used 15 peppers, 4oz cream cheese and about 1 cup of cheese. I precooked my bacon and added it to the mix, crumbled. I aslo minced the top of the peppers that I cut off and put them in with the cheese mixture and stuffed my peppers. I only cut enough of the pepper off so that I was able to get the seeds and membrane out. These were flavorful. Thank you for a great base recipe.
Ridiculously simple to make and so easy to stuff your face when they are ready! We love them!
These were HOT but delicious. I think I just got a hot batch of jalapenos because normally I don't find them to be very hot (and yes I got the seeds and membranes out). These were still a hit...I didn't wrap raw bacon around them. I had some bacon I had already cooked so I crumbled it up and stuffed it into the cream cheese before added the shredded cheese on top. They were fabulous, easy and not greasy at all this way!
this was excellent and easy. How do you remove jalapeno seeds without burning your eyes? That was my only issue... My grandfather inlaw couldn't wait for me to take them out of the oven, he grabbed them off and ate them while they were still very hot, he didn't care. excellent recipe, thank you!
I have been making this recipe for years- it is yummy! I mix my cream cheese and grated cheddar, and add some chopped green onions. I also blanch my jalapeno halves so they are not quite as spicy. They disappear at parties!
I decided for my first try I would make these exactly as written and they were a huge hit at the "Ocho" del Mayo party - a few days late to be called "Cinco"! Next time I too will leave some seeds in as I like more heat. I've already decided that I will make these for our Board BBQ in June!
Yummy! The only thing I did differently was instead of shredding cheddar, I made long slices and placed it on top of the cream cheese so it wouldn't escape. I didn't precook the bacon or even place the poppers on a rack to cook, I just placed them straight on a lined baking sheet and it was great, the bacon grease just ran to the corner of the baking sheet. Next time I will leave some seeds/ribs on the jalapenos for more spice.
I made these for my husband and not really for myself since I don't like japapenos, but the cream cheese really complemented the peppers and the bacon...well, who wouldn't eat practically anything wrapped in bacon? I did leave off the cheddar cheese on top and cooked them in a baking sheet but with a rack to drain the fat from the bacon so the peppers aren't sitting in them.
i made these tonight and i cooked them on the grill i cooked them for about 10 min and let the bacon get alittle crispy i didnt put cheese on them but i added alittle seasoning to them and they were amazing i cooked them on the top shelf to give the bacon time to cook with out burning the jalapono i also cut them in half and put the cheese side down first and then turned the over i made sure not to cook them to long so you still get the freshness of the jalopeno this will for sure be one my next part plater
