Easy Jalapeño Poppers

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a good and relaxed U.S. Independence day?

Today’s recipe is one of my favorite hors d’oeuvres or appetizers. They are peppers stuffed with cream cheese and meat or wrapped with meat – bacon to be exact.

What you need: 

7 Jalapeño peppers

8 oz cream cheese (1 pack)

Bacon (any meat of your choice: pork, turkey or chicken).


  1. Clean the peppers and cut each jalapeño lengthwise and with a small spoon, scrape out any seeds and veins.
  2. Warm the cream cheese for easy scooping
  3. Fill pepper halves with the cream cheese
  4. Wrap the stuffed peppers with strips of bacon*
  5. Arrange the peppers, filling side facing up, onto the baking sheet.
  6. Bake in a 350 F oven until the bacon is crispy and the peppers are tender; 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Bon appetite


*Can make ahead of time – Stuff and wrap jalapeño poppers up to 1 day in advance. Refrigerate, well-covered, until ready to bake.

Disclaimer – I have yet to taste a good vegan version. My vegetarians/vegans audience, any suggestions?
