Prep Time 20minutes
Cook Time 30minutes
Total Time 50minutes
10Jalapeno Peppers seeded
½ tub (7.5 oz tub)Cream Cheese plain or flavored
1packBacon, thick cut
Wash jalapeno peppers, wipe and cut into two, lengthwise.
Carefully seed the peppers and remove any thick membrane. Use a pair of gloves when seeding the peppers, if sensitive to pepper heat.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Stuff 1 – 1 ½ teaspoon of cream cheese in each piece of pepper.
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.
Place each popper on a baking sheet and bake for 25 – 30 minutes, on middle rack in a preheated oven until bacon is crisp.
Small and medium sized poppers are done in 25 minutes and long poppers in 30 minutes.
Serve hot with some soda or bear.
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.
