Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos Recipe

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos

We had these for dinner last night so I thought I'd share this family favorite with a bunch of pictures.  We eat these for snacks, lunches, & dinner. They can be made hot, if you like that or mild.  I often make them mild with an occasional one that's nice & hot! If you have sensitive skin, be sure to wear kitchen gloves while handling the jalapenos.  They can leave your hands feeling burnt.  

  • Jalapenos (10-15)
  • 1 package Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 package Bacon (I use turkey bacon)
 Rinse and pat dry jalapenos.

 Cut jalapenos length-wise and scrape out seeds and veins.  If you leave the veins or any seeds in they will be very hot! I have found the easiest way to get the seeds and veins out is by using a teaspoon.

Fill jalapenos with softened cream cheese, depending on how many you make (10-15), you can fill them a little more or less.  I like to try to use the entire package up as I don't want to use it for something else later. :)

Wrap each cream cheese filled jalapeno with bacon.  You can cut each bacon slice in half or use the whole thing per jalapeno half.  I often will use an entire bacon slice per jalapeno half and at the end if I start to run out begin cutting them in half.  So, most of them end up with a full slice of bacon.  You can use a tooth pick to hold the bacon on but I normally just make sure the end is towards the pan.  Put the wrapped jalapenos on a broiler pan or cookie sheet.  I use both but prefer to use a broiler pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until bacon is cooked to how you like it.  Let cool 3-5 minutes before serving.  We like to have them with sour cream.

Have you ever made Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos?  What's your family's favorite snack?
