Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Every bite of these Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers is loaded with creamy, spicy, cheesy, smoky flavor that is totally irresistible!

      

I like spicy and I like cheesy, and the two together are a match made in heaven. Add bacon, to the mix and holy moly, you have paradise!

 

These jalapeno peppers are my all-time favorite party appetizer.

They are stuffed with a combination of cream cheese and Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese and that is all. Super simple!

The pepper jack cheese is the ultimate balance of spice and creamy, so there is no need to add any additional ingredients. 

I recommend purchasing thin-cut bacon and don’t be stingy. Don’t cut that bacon in half. Wrap a jalapeño pepper with an entire strip of bacon.

After these little bundles of heaven are baked, the cheese mixture gets hot and melty and the peppers mellow, but the pepper jack cheese gives these poppers a hint of spice.

If you are hosting a party, I recommend doubling this recipe. I promise, these babies will be devoured as soon as you pull them out of the oven.

Yield: 16 poppers
