“Made this for Super Bowl 2011. Wanted the taste of poppers, but not the hassle of wrapping bacon around the stuffed jalapeno peppers. Turned out great. Lots of rave reviews. I would like it hotter and am planning to try it the next time without roasting the jalapenos. I am up for suggestions to make this much hotter!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds and veins (I left some seeds and veins for more heat). You need to wear rubber gloves for this step or you will suffer.
  3. Toss peppers with oil and place in pan to roast. Sometimes I roast the onions also for a milder flavor.
  4. Roast for 20-30 minutes, stirring half way through.
  5. Let peppers cool.
  6. Cook bacon (unless using real bacon bits).
  7. Either hand cut peppers, onion and bacon or process in a food processer.
  8. Mix softened cream cheese, spices, mayo, sour cream, popper/bacon/onion mix and cheese.
  9. Put in a greased 9x9" pan.
  10. Top with Parmesan cheese.
  11. Bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees.
  12. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, party bread, etc.
