My Famous Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos (Poppers)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Laurenhanna

Always a request for any party/ gathering im inviteded to - but only for spicey lovers - although, can easily substitude green peppers in place of jalepenos for those of you who cant handle the heat!! They go fast, so i usually make a double batch.

I enjoyed the additional flavors added to the traditional cream cheese filling in these and the cracked pepper on top. (I used the cumin option.) I always wear disposable plastic gloves when making poppers to prevent burning. I baked on a foil lined pan and flipped the peppers a few times during the bake time. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix Last 5 items with softened cream cheese with blender or spoon, whatever is easiest for you!
  2. preheat over to 375°F.
  3. Slice jalepenos in half lengthwise, and dig out the seeds and stuff in the middle (be SURE to rinse your hands after every couple jalepenos with soap and warm water - or your hands will get burned by juices).
  4. Fill jalepenos, just a tad over filled with cream cheese blend (about a Tbs. each).
  5. wrap with a slice of bacon and crack more fresh pepper on top of wrap, if you like.
  6. Bake for 25-35 minute however crisy you like your bacon - but bacon will be cooked thruogh after 25 minutes. Can broil the last 5 min if you like as well.
