  • 12 medium whole jalapeno peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 12 slices uncooked bacon, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped


  • Pre-heat oven to 375°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. 
  • Fill each jalapeño half with some of the cheese mixture and wrap with one-half slice bacon. Secure bacon with a toothpick and set on the prepared baking sheet. 
  • Place the baking sheet in the pre-heated oven and bake until the cheese mixture is golden-brown and bubbly, and the bacon is cooked through, approximately 20-25 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet once halfway through cooking to ensure even browning.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and transfer the poppers to a serving platter. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve immediately.
