"Jalapeno with a juicy lil smokes, spiced cream cheese, wrapped in crispy bacon smothered in a sweet tangy bbq sauce. The flavor of the smokey jalapeno matches perfectly with the sweet fruity sauce, and of course it’s heat is in good company with the medley of peppers tasted in each bite. A spoonful of sauce on each popper and you can guarantee these tasty treats will disappear in no time flat! (from BBQ Addicts)"

"New go-to recipe for the holidays and get-togethers. These were SO good! Others are right, they don't keep really well because the bacon gets soggy, but fresh they are TO DIE FOR. I doubled the recipe and they were gone in no time. A little time consuming, but they're something you can make first and throw them in while you prepare other dishes since they take so long to cook. I made a sauce with BBQ and raspberry jam and it was the perfect combo of spicy and sweet goodness!"
"These were the biggest hit of all my Christmas appetizers! I read the other reviews and took inspiration from the ideas of those who had made them before. First, I microwaved thick sliced bacon for 2 minutes after cutting each strip in half, then wrapped the poppers. As I inserted the toothpick in each popper, I placed it into a foil-lined baking pan. Once they were all in the pan, I pressed brown sugar on the top of each one- the fat from the partially cooked bacon made it easy to adhere. Last step was a good sprinkling of Tony Chachere's seasoning on each. I put them in the oven at 250 degrees for 1 hour, then raised the heat to 350 until the bacon was crispy and they were obviously done, about another 30 minutes or so in my oven. I made a dip with raspbery preserves, a little barbecue sauce and orange juice. They were ALL GONE in less than 5 minutes- spicy and DELICIOUS!! Thank you!!!!"
"EXCELLENT! These are so good with just the right amount of heat for us. I halved the recipe for the two of us, wanting some left-overs for the week. I cooked mine for 2 hours in the oven at 250 and still didn't think the bacon was done. I didn't feel I could cook the pepper any longer thought without it being mushy (which it was a little) Next time I make these, I'm going to cook the bacon about a minute and a half in the microwave then wrap the pepper because I like the long cooking time and the way it caramelized the bar-b-que sauce. Thanks for sharing College Girl Made for PAC Fall 09 :)"
"I love these Poppers; Tried them last night and they were awesome."
"I've made these many times now. EVERYONE just loves them! I always sprinkle brown sugar on them before baking. Sounds weird, but it is very good! I also pour off the drippings about three quarters the way through to keep them crisp. Thank you College Girl for a kickin' recipe and for making me the star of whatever event that I take them to!"
"I am soooo stopping off at the store on may way home from work so I can make these for my friends this weekend. I've made the regular cream cheese filled bacon wrapped Jalapenos, but throw sausage in there, and you've got yourself a winner!"
"My husband quickly fell in love with these snacks!"
