Ingredients

  • 8 jalapeños peppers
  • 1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup shredded Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 16 slices bacon halved

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Halve jalapeños lengthwise, then use a spoon to remove seeds and veins.
  • Mix cream cheese and pepper jack cheese together in a small bowl.
  • Stuff each pepper half with cheese filling.
  • Wrap each pepper with a slice of bacon.
  • Lay flat on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bacon is crispy.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.

Notes

  • If you are hosting a party, I recommend doubling this recipe. 
  • You can make the poppers ahead of time by stuffing and wrapping the peppers, then refrigerating them until you're ready to bake them. They will last up to 2 days without baking.
  • I recommend purchasing thin-cut bacon for this recipe for even cooking, but don't be skimpy! Use a whole piece of bacon for each popper.
