  • 8 fresh jalapeño peppers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half
  • Toothpicks for securing the bacon


Follow these step-by-step instructions to create the ultimate Jalapeño Poppers:

Step 1: Prepare the Jalapeños

Wash the jalapeño peppers thoroughly and pat them dry with a paper towel. Cut off the stem end of each pepper, then slice them in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to remove the seeds and veins, adjusting the spiciness to your preference.

Step 2: Prepare the Filling

In a bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. This creamy and flavorful filling is what sets our Jalapeño Poppers apart.

Step 3: Stuff the Jalapeños

Spoon the cheese filling into each halved jalapeño pepper. Ensure that each pepper is generously filled, creating a tantalizing blend of spicy and creamy flavors.

Step 4: Wrap with Bacon

Take a half slice of bacon and wrap it around each stuffed jalapeño, securing it in place with a toothpick. The savory bacon adds a delightful smoky element to the poppers and provides a wonderful contrast to the creamy filling.

Step 5: Grill or Bake

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat or preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the wrapped jalapeño poppers on the grill grates or a baking sheet. Grill or bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the filling is bubbling.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy

Remove the Jalapeño Poppers from the heat source and let them cool for a few minutes. Carefully remove the toothpicks and arrange the poppers on a platter. These delectable treats are best enjoyed when served warm as an appetizer or alongside your favorite grilled meats.
