Recipe by Emoximuu

This is a great recipe I got from a friend. I really enjoy it, as I can eat these jalapenos without setting my mouth on fire.

These have a great, slightly sweet, slightly smoky flavor. They have a nice little kick without being obnoxious. Great app or snack for a get-together, but make a LOT because they're addictive and go quickly. I like that they're pretty easy to make but a creative deviation from the standard cream-cheese jalepeno poppers.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 15 jalapenos
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 13 cup jalapeno jelly
  • 12 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 teaspoon cumin
  • 15 slices bacon


  1. Wearing gloves, cut the ends off the jalapenos, and slice each in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and as much white membrane as possible.
  2. Place the jalapeno halves in a glass bowl, and cover with hot water. (There's no need to boil the water, just use the hottest tap water possible; this will pull alot of the spicy oils out of the jalapenos.) Let sit for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F Mix both cheeses, jelly and cumin together.
  4. Slice the bacon in half, making 30 pieces of bacon.
  5. Drain the jalapenos, rinsing well. Fill each jalapeno half with the cream cheese mixture, then wrap with the bacon half. Place the stuffed jalapenos, open side up, on a baking rack.
  6. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, or until bacon is done. Let cool 5 minutes before eating,.
