Ready In:
30 appetizers


  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 15 large jalapeno peppers
  • 15 slices bacon, cut in half widthwise
  • 30 toothpicks


  • mix cream cheese, cajun spice, and garlic powder together make sure they are well mixed.
  • (you can add more cajun spice to give these guys a real kick).
  • remove stems from jalapenos and cut lengthwise remove all the seeds and as much of the white veins as possible to allow room for filling.
  • fill each jalapeno half with some cream cheese mixture.
  • wrap a half slice of bacon around the half and secure with a toothpick.
  • when coals are ready place jalapenos on the grill filling side up and cook for 10 minutes or until bacon is done (changed color and sizzling).
  • these little guys can get real hot if you want them to or they can be as mild as i make them.
  • just be sure to mix the cream cheese mix well or you will get a few hot and the rest mild.

    Fabulous! Will reduce my cajun seasoning t 1 t next time b/c a bit too salty for me but otherwise great flavor! Keeper, TYTYTY!

    These were pretty good. I used turkey bacon but followed the directions otherwise. Next time I will add shredded cheese to the cream cheese.

    Took these to a tailgate this past weekend and they were gone as soon as they were grilled! We needed to flip them to fully cook the bacon and I highly recommend using a skewer through the middle of multiple poppers, it made turning that much easier!! I also added about a cup of finely shredded cheddar cheese to the filling as I'm a cheese addict.

    Of course I believe adding Tony's to just about anything makes it better, and I believe that the addition of it and the garlic powder put your basic stuffed jalapeno recipe over the top! This is the only way I make them now. If you're not grilling other foods and pressed for time, you can also bake these in the oven at about 400 for 20 minutes - broil for a few if bacon isn't brown. Best stuffed jalapeno recipe ever!

    These were tasty morsels. I didn't know exactly what cajun seasoning was so I used Paul Prudhome's blackened magic seasoning. Zippy but good.
