Candied Jalapeño Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Candied Jalapeño Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 35 minutes Servings: Approximately 12 poppers


  • 6 large jalapeño peppers

  • 6 slices of bacon, cut in half

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4 cup candied jalapeños, finely chopped (adjust to your desired level of spiciness)

  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • Toothpicks for securing the bacon


1. Prepare the Jalapeños:

  • Wear gloves while handling the jalapeños to avoid contact with the seeds and oils. Slice each jalapeño in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and membranes.

2. Prepare the Filling:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, finely chopped candied jalapeños, shredded cheddar cheese, and garlic powder. Mix until well blended.

3. Stuff the Jalapeños:

  • Spoon the cream cheese mixture into each jalapeño half, filling them generously.

4. Wrap with Bacon:

  • Wrap each stuffed jalapeño half with a half-slice of bacon, securing it with a toothpick through the center.

5. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and lightly grease it with cooking spray.

6. Bake the Poppers:

  • Arrange the bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers on the wire rack. This allows the bacon to cook evenly and become crispy.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the jalapeños are tender.

7. Cool and Serve:

  • Carefully remove the toothpicks from the poppers.

  • Let the Candied Jalapeño Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers cool for a few minutes before serving.

8. Enjoy:

  • Serve your delectable poppers as a delicious appetizer or party snack, and savor the delightful combination of sweet, spicy, creamy, and savory flavors!

These Candied Jalapeño Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers are perfect for gatherings, game days, or any occasion when you want to impress your guests with a flavorful and spicy appetizer. Enjoy the irresistible blend of textures and flavors in each bite!
