  • 6 jalapeño peppers (about 8 ounces) sliced lengthwise in half with seeds and membranes removed
  • 6 slices bacon cut widthwise in half
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Add cream cheese to a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave until slightly softened, about 15 seconds. Add cheddar cheese and garlic powder. Mix until combined.
  2. Stuff each pepper half with the cream cheese mixture. Wrap a halved bacon slice around each pepper. Secure with a toothpick as needed.
  3. Place the stuffed peppers in a single layer onto a baking tray.
  4. Bake at 400 F until the cheese is starting to brown, about 20 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil for a few minutes to crisp up the bacon. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
