Jalapenos ready to be stuffed...
Hubby helped with stuffing...
Jalapenos ready to be placed on a tray for the oven...
Ready to serve...
Bacon Wrapped Cheese Jalapeno
- 12 jalapeno peppers
- 8 ounces cream cheese; room temperature
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 clove garlic
- 6 slices bacon cut in half
- salt and pepper
Cut the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and membrane. Set aside.
In a stand mixer or food processor, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth.
Spoon the filling into pepper half.
Wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a half of slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick through the center to make sure the bacon stays in place.
Place the jalapenos on a baking tray that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the cheese is melted. I turned the boiler on for a minutes or two to get the bacon extra crispy.
Wash your hands immediately after touching the seeds and membranes of the jalapenos.
You do NOT want to touch your eyes while handling jalapenos.
