Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

These bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers are the perfect party appetizer you should try, loaded with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, wrapped in bacon. This creamy, spicy, and cheesy appetizer is beyond delicious and ready in around 30 minutes.

Ingredients for this Recipe :

  • 12 medium jalapeño peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 12 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped

Notes :

  • Jalapeño peppers can vary quite a bit in size. For best results, choose uniformly sized small to medium peppers for this recipe.
  • The cheese mixture will puff up a bit while baking, so don’t overstuff each pepper half while filling or the cheese may overflow onto the baking sheet.

How to Make Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers :

Step One:

Pre-heat oven to 375°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat™ baking mat. Set aside.

Step Two:

In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.

Step Three:

Fill each jalapeño half with some of the cheese mixtures and wrap with one-half slice bacon. Secure bacon with a toothpick and set it on the prepared baking sheet.

Step Four:

Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake until the cheese mixture is golden-brown and bubbly, and the bacon is cooked through, approximately 20-25 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet once halfway through cooking to ensure even browning.

Step Five:

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and transfer the poppers to a serving platter. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy!
