  • 10 jalapenos
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 10 slices thin bacon


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Place a wire rack on top if you want the poppers to be crispy. 
  • Cut the jalapenos in half lengthwise and then remove the seeds and membranes. 
  • Combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and onion powder in a small bowl. Mix until combined. Add a dash of salt and pepper if desired. Then fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese and place on the baking sheet.
  • Cut the bacon in half and then wrap around the center of the jalapeno. Secure with a toothpick. 
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. Serve while hot. 


Tip: I've found that using fully cooked bacon (or precooking it for 10 minutes) helps get the bacon a lot crispier.
