Healthy alternative to the breaded/deep fried "poppers" Jalapenos, Cheese, Bacon. - Yum

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 jalapenos (straighter are easier to work with)
  • 3 ounces cheddar cheese (block or shredded)
  • 6 bacon pieces
  • 12 toothpicks


  1. I'm using this great grill rack I bought from Sur La Table. It basically just a stand for the peppers so you dont have to slice them in half longways and lets you make a whole stuffed pepper. It also comes with a really interesting tool to gut the jalapenos.
  2. pre-heat oven to 400.
  3. Cut stems off all Jalapenos and gut them of seeds.
  4. Cut Cheddar Cheese into 12 "sticks" that you can shove into the jalapenos.
  5. Cut 6 Bacon strips in half.
  6. Stuff cheese stick into jalapeno.
  7. Wrap pepper with bacon and "pin" it pepper using tooth picks.
  8. Place peppers on grill rack and bake for 15 minutes.
