What are Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers?

Bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers are jalapeno peppers stuffed with creamy cream cheese, wrapped with bacon and baked till crisp. This spicy, creamy, bacon wrapped jalapenos are very addictive and disappear in matter of minutes. Therefore, poppers are a great for any BBQ parties, game day party or any gathering and there won’t be any leftovers!

With so many flavors of cream cheeses available these days, pick a flavor of choice for the stuffing. I used garden vegetable and garlic & herb flavors and prefer garden vegetable. Mr U didn’t even notice the difference. Since jalapenos peppers are de-seeded, these are not very spicy, at least to my palate. For spicy popper, do consider jalapeno flavor cream cheese.

Crispy bacon wrapped around spicy cream stuffed jalapeno are a crowd pleaser.

Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Keyword: 3 Ingredient Recipe, Party Food
Servings: 20 pieces
  • 10 Jalapeno Peppers seeded
  • ½ tub (7.5 oz tub) Cream Cheese plain or flavored
  • 1 pack Bacon, thick cut
  1. Wash jalapeno peppers, wipe and cut into two, lengthwise. 

  2. Carefully seed the peppers and remove any thick membrane. Use a pair of gloves when seeding the peppers, if sensitive to pepper heat.

  3. Preheat the oven to 400F.

  4. Stuff 1 – 1 ½ tsp of cream cheese in each piece of pepper.

  5. Cut each bacon strip into two and wrap a strip of bacon around each stuffed pepper. If jalapeno peppers are long/big, use a full strip of bacon. For small to medium sized jalapenos, half strip of bacon is sufficient.

  6. Place each popper on a baking sheet and bake for 25 – 30 minutes, on middle rack in a preheated oven until bacon is crisp. 

  7. Small and medium sized poppers are done in 25 minutes and long poppers in 30 minutes. 

  8. Serve hot with some soda or bear.

Recipe Notes
  • Cream Cheese – Use plain cream cheese or any flavor of choice. The two flavors I tried are garden vegetable and garlic & herb. My preference is garden vegetables flavor. Since jalapeno are seeded, peppers not spicy hot. So, for spicy poppers use jalapeno flavor cream cheese or do not remove all the seeds from the jalapeno.
