Paula Deen's Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by WiGal

A Paula Deen recipe posted for safekeeping. Peppers can be stuffed up to one day ahead. Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Bake just before serving. After Chef Jean's review I have made and revised this.

Sorry Paula Deen, but I think this recipe could use some tweeking. My peppers ended up being pretty mushy, maybe cook at a little higher temp for about 15 minutes. Also, I thought the filling could have used some spice to it, I would add in the seeds from one of the peppers before filling them. On the other hand the filling had great texture, and the bacon was soo yummy! Made for PAC Spring '10.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. She says line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. But I would set them on a baking rack in the rimmed baking sheet to get them out of the grease although they are harder to get out that way.
  3. Cut a lengthwise slit down center of each pepper.
  4. Cut a crosswise slit at top of each pepper to form a T.
  5. Carefully remove seeds from inside of peppers, leaving peppers intact.
  6. In a large bowl, combine black beans, corn, both cheeses, chili powder, and cumin.
  7. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons bean mixture evenly into each jalapeno.
  8. Fold bacon half slice around each jalapeno.
  9. Secure with wooden picks, if needed.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes or until bacon is cooked through.
  11. Serve immediately.
