  1. These were awesome! I've made bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers with just cream cheese/cheddar and those are pretty good. This filling had superior flavor and makes it really easy to fill the jalapenos since everything is mixed together. I made a bunch and froze the extras. Upon cooking the frozen ones, the results were still excellent.
  2. Didn't find these too hot at all...loved them! Made for Football Tag.
  3. These were really nice, just a perfect heat. Delicious
  4. Made this recipe, but modified it for baking in the oven. In the past I have made bacon wrapped jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese, but this recipe drew my interest since the bacon is cooked, chopped up, and placed in the filling. I only had bacon, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese in the filling. I add a couple of dashes of chili powder and garlic powder to the cheese mixture as well. I lined my baking sheet with foil and set the unfilled peppers in the oven to partially cook them for about 10 minutes. Working with a kitchen towel in hand, I stuffed the peppers and returned them to the oven and baked them for 10-15 minutes. These are delicious!
  5. These were insanely good. Don’t worry if bottoms of peppers are charred ... didn’t matter at all.
