Blue Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers Recipe
These baked, stuffed jalapeño poppers—made with rich, tangy blue cheese and crumbly bacon—are everyday gourmet. They’re perfect for an anytime appetizer.
Servings: 20 poppers
- 10 large jalapeño peppers or as many as you can fill
- 6 ounces bacon
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 10 ounces Stella® Blue Cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- FOR SERVING: fresh chopped cilantro, spicy chili flakes
Slice 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, about 8-10 minutes. Drain the bacon on paper towels and let them cool. Crumble them into a mixing bowl.
Add the cream cheese, Stella® Blue Cheese and garlic powder to the mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
Fill each jalapeño slice with the bacon-blue cheese mixture and set them onto a baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melty.
Sprinkle with fresh herbs and spicy chili flakes. Serve!
