Jalapeño Poppers

Easy Grilled

These grilled jalapeno poppers are stuffed with a mix of cheeses, crumbled bacon and seasonings, so easy to make, the perfect snack or appetizer! I love them.



– Slice the jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise and core out the innards.


– Cook the bacon in a pan over medium heat until the fat renders and the bacon becomes nice and crispy. Drain the bacon on paper towels and let them cool. Crumble them into a mixing bowl, but reserve some for topping.


– Add the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and spices to the mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. Add the bacon crumbles and jalapeños. Mix well.


– Fill each jalapeno slice with the spiced cheese mixture. Wrap the stuffed jalapenos with a slice of bacon (optional).


– Heat a grill to medium heat and grill the jalapeno poppers for 10-15 minutes, or until the poppers are done to your liking.


– Remove from heat, garnish with extra crumbled bacon, red pepper flakes and fresh chopped cilantro, and serve.
