I have made these for years now but how do you get away with only 10 peppers? I have to make them by the pounds of peppers so to cut cost I wrap them with 1/2 slices of bacon. Still great and addictive. Of course using so many peppers I have to drain off drippings often before they are done. A tip I have learned is the more pointed the pepper is the hotter it is so I try to get round-tip peppers.

we grow our own jalepeno's and this year they were just huge! So this recipe was a perfect way to enjoy them. We are on a low carb diet so we could enjoy this recipe without all the guilt. My husband thinks that I am just wonderful for making these poppers anytime he wants!

This is one of my favorite recipes!! my godmother makes these for me when I get a chance to go home- the only difference is she adds a small piece of cooked chicken breast with the cream cheese. She has also made these on the gril before, and also has cooked the bacon for a few minutes before making these so that when you make the poppers, the bacon gets crisp. Thanks for posting, maybe i will make these for myself now :) Also thanks Bergy for the bananna pepper tip, I LOVE bananna peppers- so will have to try that sometime too.

I wanted to try these out before I made them for a party so I made them one afternoon for my husband and myself. They were quite easy and very good. We had to stop ourselves from eating them all in one sitting! I will definitely serve them for a party and I'm thinking if I want to dress them up a bit, they would be good with a shrimp imbedded in the cheese then wrapped with the bacon.

Thank you so much for posting this! I had a party and they were a huge hit!! My friends could not stop talking about them! The taste was simple and delicious. The prep time took me about 20 minutes. I halved about 30 peppers. We cooked them at a cooler temp- 350 degrees. It took about 45 minutes to bake, but the bacon was nice and crisp!

These are simple and very delicious!! I modified this recipe to use 6 oz fat free cream cheese and mixed this with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar. Big hit at my house!!

I changed mine up a little bit, I like cheddar cheese on my jalapeno poppers so I sprinkled it after the cream cheese. Also I added minced tomatoes and fresh garlic to mine and it turned out to be the BEST jalapeno poppers I've ever had. It's like it had a great dip in it and the crispy bacon on the outside made it outstanding for such an easy appetizer. (New experiment, get a spinach and artichoke dip etc. and stuff?) If you let them cool on a rack with a paper towel they become super crispy.

These turned out delicious. Thank you for a scalable recipe. I only had two jalapenos, because they are not easy to find (and expensive if you do!) where I live. I may have to go to the bank.

Big hit at my Super Bowl party. So easy and jalape?os were so inexpensive. You only need to wrap them in half a piece of bacon. Not too spicy either.

Great recipe! I actually used thick bacon from Trader Joe's and cooked them a bit longer. Yummy!
