0 Flares 0 Flares ×

A crowd favorite for your Super Bowl party.   You can assemble the poppers in advance and refrigerate until ready to bake. If you have kids or want a milder version, substitute with mini sweet peppers ( sold in bags).

Makes 24

Ingredients

  • 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese ( or Mexican blend)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 jalapeño chiles,  halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in thirds
  • Paprika or chili powder ( optional)

Directions
Heat oven to 375°F.

Cut jalapeños in half, length-wise and remove seeds. In a bowl, mix  together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and garlic.

Spoon filling into each jalapeño half. Cut each bacon slice into thirds and wrap 1 piece of bacon around each pepper and secure with a toothpick.

Place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper.  Sprinkle spice desired on top of peppers.

Bake 25 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
