Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Poppers Appetizers
Recipe type: appetizer
Serves: 24 poppers
  • 12 large jalapeno
  • 8 oz. of bacon (half a pack. You can add more if you really like bacon.) I use turkey bacon.
  • 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese (I like to use ½ cup sharp cheddar & ½ of smoked cheddar)
  • 1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  2. Remove the stems from the jalapeno
  3. Cut jalapeno lengthwise and remove the membranes and seed. You can rinse them off with cool water to help wash away the seeds if needed.
  4. Fry bacon according to the package. When done, drain bacon of paper towels and let cool.
  5. When bacon has cooled, stack a few pieces up and dice into bits.
  6. In a medium-sized bowl, add softened cream cheese, & cheddar cheese. Stir until creamy and then stir in bacon.
  7. Stuff the jalapeno peppers with the cheese mixture and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Let them cool off and then get to popping!!!
