  • 8 jalapeno peppers
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder + extra for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 slices bacon (thin cut)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides with a spoon.
  • Add the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and seasonings to a bowl and mix well.
  • Fill each jalapeno pepper half with the spicy cheese mixture. You might have some leftover, depending on the size of your peppers. Just distribute evenly.
  • Wrap each stuffed jalapeno boat with a slice of bacon. Pierce with toothpicks to hold the bacon in place.
  • Sprinkle them with extra chili powder and bake the jalapeno poppers about 20-30 minutes, or until the peppers soften and the bacon is starting to crisp. You can blast them with the broiler a couple of minutes at the end if you need to.
  • Remove from heat, cool slightly, and serve.
