Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

These are healthier than their breaded deep fried cousins and they have twice the flavor. I first saw this recipe on Pioneer Woman and it has become cult legend in our circle of friends. Thanks Ree!
Servings 10


  • 20 whole jalapenos split lengthwise and seeded carefully
  • 2 blocks cream cheese
  • 1 lb thin bacon cut into thirds
  • toothpicks


  • Depending on the heat levels of the peppers you are using you may want to use latex gloves to protect your skin. I personally like incredibly hot Bulgarian Carrots instead of the Jalapenos but I am insane.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Once your jalapeno slices are split and seeded fill them generously with cream cheese. Wrap a piece of bacon around the pepper half and secure with a toothpick. You can freeze or refrigerate this peppers for later use or bake immediately.
  • Bake on a pan with a rack for 20-25 minutes. If after 20 minutes your bacon is not brown turn on your broiler and watch carefully until brown.
  • These are great hot or at room temperature so don't waste hot plate space on these. They probably won't survive long enough to get cold anyway.
