  • 20 medium jalapeños
  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 pound bacon sliced in half or thirds


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Cut jalapeños in half, length-wise.
  • With a spoon, remove the seeds and the ribs (or white membrane).
  • Fill with some softened cream cheese into each jalapeño half.
  • Wrap the jalapeños with the sliced bacon pieces.
  • Secure by sticking toothpick through the middle or laying seam side down.
  • Bake on a baking sheet preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • If, after 20 minutes, the bacon doesn’t look brown enough, turn on the broiler for a couple of minutes to finish it off, just keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
  • These are bestest when the jalapeño still has a bit of bite to it.


Always wear protective gloves while handling raw jalapeños and avoid touching your eyes.
