Jalapeño Poppers in Bacon

A tasty and fiery appetiser bursting with cheesy, spicy deliciousness

This recipe serves 4-6 people.

  • Preparation time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
  • Total time: 40-45 minutes
  • 12 fresh jalapeño peppers
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 250g shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Greenfields jalapeño powder
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and membranes using a spoon. Be cautious while handling jalapeños as they can be spicy. If desired, you can wear gloves to protect your hands.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, red jalapeño powder, dried oregano, dried thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  4. Spoon the cheese mixture into the jalapeño halves, filling each one generously.
  5. Wrap each stuffed jalapeño with a slice of bacon, securing it with a toothpick if necessary.
  6. Place the bacon-wrapped jalapeños on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Once cooked, remove the jalapeño poppers from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
  8. Serve the poppers as they are or with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as ranch dressing or salsa.
