Step 1

Start with your fresh jalapenos. Slice each jalapeno in half length-wise.

Step 2

With a spoon, gently scrape out the seeds and white membranes. This process moves pretty quickly. If you like a little more heat, leave some seeds in the jalapeno.

Step 3

Now cut the bacon slices into thirds. I usually just go ahead and cut the whole package at once. I like shortcuts.

Step 4

Now unwrap the softened cream cheese and smear a generous amount of cream cheese in each jalapeno half.

Step 5

Take a piece (1/3 slice) of bacon and wrap it around each jalapeno. Wrap it snugly, but not too tight.

Step 6

Now stick a toothpick through the middle of each one; this will keep the bacon from coming off in the oven. Place them on a pan with a rack (so bacon grease can escape) and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


I usually like to add a little brown sugar on top. It tastes so good!!
