Jalapeno poppers are always a hit. They’re easy to make and disappear quickly.
Who doesn’t like a perfect bite of gooey cheese with bacon crumbles? We tend to be jalapeno popper fanatics around here, mixing and matching stuffing styles and ingredients, trying new types of foods, filling up not only jalapeno peppers but chili peppers of all types.

Get the party going with these jalapeno poppers and sweet Cubanelle peppers stuffed with a mixture of goat cheese, ricotta and seasonings then topped with bacon crumbles.
- 10 jalapeno peppers
- 3 tablespoons ricotta cheese
- 8 ounces goat cheese
- 3 cloves garlic diced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons spicy chili powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and core out the insides. Set them onto a baking sheet.
To a mixing bowl, add ricotta cheese, goat cheese, garlic, cumin, and spicy chili powder. Mix well.
Spoon the mixture into the jalapeno peppers then top each with crumbled bacon.
