If you’ve ever wanted to make your family and associates think you are a kitchen guru then making bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers are for you. They are simple finger foods that are perfect for any gathering or party. Here’s how we made them:


  • 1/2 cup Philadelphia cream cheese

  • 1/2 cup shredded Kraft sharp cheddar cheese~ shredded 

  • 12 jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise, seeds and membranes removed

  • 12 slices bacon cut in half

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. (We used our pizza pan wrapped in foil)
  2. Mix cream cheese and Cheddar cheese together in a bowl until evenly blended. Fill each jalapeno half with the cheese mixture. Wrap each stuffed pepper with a slice of bacon. Arrange bacon-wrapped peppers on the prepared baking sheet. Normally people say to cut the peppers in half and then put the back together but it actually taste and cooks better when you wrap the halves in bacon. 
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is cooked, about 15 minutes.

We also tried this same recipe with  poblano peppers and they didn’t have the same appeal or taste but that’s the joy of trial and error when cooking-you live and you learn. What’s your favorite finger food?
