“A friend and I were hosting a Taco Night dinner for a bunch of friends and I made these for one of the appetizers. They went so fast that I didn't have a chance to take a picture...even one of the guests who can't stand cream cheese ate three of these!”
READY IN:
30mins
YIELD:
30 stuffed jalapenos
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 15 jalapenos
  • 16 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 30 slices bacon
  • 1 dash salt, pepper and garlic powder
  • toothpick

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Cut the jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and ribs. (If you like them hot, leave some of the seeds in).
  3. In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  4. Stuff the pepper halves with the cheese mixture.
  5. Wrap each pepper with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Try to cover the whole top of the pepper so the cheese doesn't ooze out while it's cooking.
  6. Place the wrapped peppers on a cookie sheet and cook for 15 - 20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and cheese is bubbly. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
