Bacon Wrapped {Jalapeno} Poppers

Made, Written & Photographed by the Creators of the Point

Surprisingly the man who hates all things spice requested Jalapeno Poppers {Tyler}. This recipe still has the spice of jalapenos but the bacon and the optional BBQ sauce help to calm it down a bit. Just make sure to wear gloves or be VERY careful not to touch your eyes while you're cutting and removing seeds from these babies.


Bacon Wrapped {Jalapeno} Poppers

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour

10 minutes

Cuisine: American

Special Tools: Toothpicks

Course: Appetizer


  • 6 fresh jalapeños halved length wise and seeds removed

  • 4 oz cream cheese softened

  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 tbsp green onion diced

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 9 slices bacon cut in half

  • bottled BBQ sauce optional

  • tooth picks


  1. Preheat oven to 275°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  2. In a medium bowl, beat together your cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions, garlic powder, and onion powder.

  3. Next, fill each jalapeño half with the cream cheese mixture.

  4. Wrap each popper loosely with 1-2 slices of bacon (however many slices you have vs how big the peppers are). Secure with a toothpick for baking.

  5. OPTIONAL (but suggested): Brush your poppers with BBQ sauce.

  6. Place in oven for about 1 hour or until bacon is crisp. You can also broil to speed up that process at the end.

  7. Serve hot or at room temp!


If you'd prefer not to have spice, swap out Jalapenos with sweet peppers. It's just as good and you can almost taste the flavors better!
