  • 10 large jalapeno peppers, halved (seeds removed)
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened if possible
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked
  • 1/2 cup Mexican-blend shredded cheese


  1. Heat oven to 400. Microwave 10 pepper halves on a paper plate for 3 minutes; repeat with remaining peppers. Allow to cool briefly. 

  2. Cut 2 ounces of cream cheese in half; cut each half into 10 slices. Spread each slice onto a pepper half. 

  3. Top each pepper half with 2 bacon bits. Spread 1/2 cup of cheese evenly over each pepper half. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, or until cheese is browned.
