Cream cheese stuffed jalapenos are a great appetizer. These are really easy to prepare and taste great. Cooks Note: Depending on the size of your peppers, you may need more or less to use up all of the filling. We had some very large jalapenos. Any leftover filling is delicious in mushroom caps, too. The filling is very HOT. Allow them to rest for 5 minute before attempting to eat them.
  • 10 jalapenos, cut in half with seeds and veins removed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup cooked chopped bacon
  • ½ cup shredded cheese or crushed tortilla chips for topping (optional)
  1. Preheat Oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Mix together the cream cheese, shredded cheese, and chopped bacon
  3. Fill jalapenos with this mixture
  4. Dip exposed cream cheese in crushed tortilla chips or shredded cheese (optional)
  5. Arrange them on a prepared, or parchment lined, baking sheet
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is bubbly and jalapenos are soft but not mushy.
  7. Allow to set for 5 minutes before serving. Filling will be HOT!
