Bacon-Cream Cheese Jalapeños

I came across this recipe years ago, and have adapted it over time. Here’s how I do it.


  • Jalapeños (as many as you want to make)
  • About 1 tbsp per jalapeño of cream cheese, softened
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Bacon 1/2 slice per jalapeño, cooked but still soft



  • Cut an outer portion of the jalapeño off, and remove the core and seeds (Repeat this step for all jalapeños)


  • Dice up 1-2 or two of the removed jalapeño sections and place in a bowl
  • Add cream cheese and garlic powder to bowl, mix well
  • Using a spoon, fill each jalapeño with the cream cheese mix. Don’t over fill, the cheese will expand in the heat
  • Place a 1/2 slice of bacon on each jalapeño
  • Grill or bake jalapeños until the skin of the jalapeño looks darker, more loose. Or until the bacon is crispy.



My last batch I improvised and fill a couple with ground sausage and topped them with feta cheese.
