“Delicious stuffed jalapeno recipe I got from my sister. Great for parties, especially barbecues. You can cook either in the oven or on the grill, but I prefer the grill. You can also substitute Anaheim peppers for a little less heat.”
30 peppers

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and remove the seeds of the jalapenos by making a "T" cut in the jalapenos and scooping out the seeds. (A "T" cut is where you cut the pepper horizontal about half way and then in the middle of the slit, you cut a vertical slit forming a "T" cut in the pepper.).
  2. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, sun dried tomatoes, and garlic powder. Using a teaspoon "stuff" the jalapeno with the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Wrap jalapeno in bacon and secure with a toothpick. (If you are cooking on the grill remember to soak toothpick in water for 15 minutes before securing pepper with it, to ensure it doesn't catch fire on the grill).
  4. Cook on the grill or bake at 450° F for 15 minutes or until bacon is cooked through.
  5. Enjoy!
