How do you make Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers?

This meal prep snack is a real treat to make. The mouth-watering aroma and the simplicity makes bacon-wrapped jalapeño peppers a grade-A snack to cook! 

First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and place a wire cooling rack on a medium baking sheet. Once you’re all set up, time to start using your ingredients. Stir together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and chives and spoon 1-2 teaspoons of the cheese and chive mixture into each jalapeño half. Then wrap each jalapeño half with 1 piece of bacon (yes, just one). Place your stuffed and wrapped peppers on the cooling rack and baking sheet and pop them in the oven for 35 minutes. When cooking time is up, remove your bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes so the bacon can get extra crispy. Mmmmm those creamy and crispy textures with that smoky and spicy taste profile. Excuse us as we wipe our drool.

Other tips for making Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers:

  • Add sour cream to the cheese filling for more tang and top with panko breadcrumbs for more crunch. 

  • Wear rubber gloves while cutting the jalapeños in half so the oils don’t seep into your skin and you accidentally burn your eyes by rubbing them later. Ouch!

  • Easily remove pepper seed with a 1/2 – inch teaspoon. Start scraping at the top and work your way down the jalapeño half. But if you want spicier poppers, leave the seeds and membranes.

  • Slice the rounded halves of the peppers so your poppers lay flat during baking and your cheese stuffing doesn’t fall out. 

  • For easy reheating or cooking pre-gathering, store your prepped bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers in a glass container. Instantly go from the fridge or freezer to oven, cooked, and yummy!
