Get in my belly! Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno Poppers

  • 6 Jalapenos, seeds and stems removed
  • 3 Ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 6 Strips Bacon (I like using the Center Cut bacon for these)
  • 6 Toothpicks soaked in water

Soak toothpicks in warm water for at least 30 minute,s and cut off jalapeno stems and split the peppers down the center.  Scrape out all the seeds.

In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, chili powder and honey until well combined.  Spoon cream cheese mixture into both halves of each jalapeno.

Stick jalapeno back together again and wrap each jalapeno with a whole strip of bacon.  Be sure to cover the top of the jalapeno so the cream cheese doesn’t all come out.

Use a wet toothpick to secure the bacon and hold everything together.  Grill poppers on medium heat until the bacon is crispy and pepper is cooked, about 20 minutes, and turn occasionally.

Some of the cheese will drip out while cooking.  Let cool 5 minutes before serving or the melted cheese can burn your mouth.

  1. I tried this recipe this weekend, and it turned out GREAT! I did change the recipe to bake the poppers on a wire rack over a cookie sheet at 350 for about 25 minutes, instead of grilling them. This gave the bacon a nice even cooking. The cream cheese filling has a nice sweet & smoky flavor that goes great with the jalapeno! Thanks for a great recipe!

    (I was also able to assembly the poppers earlier in the day and refrigerate them, then bake them when it was party time- that made it easy)
