  • 10 large fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 10 strips cooked bacon, cut in half
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  2. In a bowl mix the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, pepper, and onion powder. 

  3. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mixture into each jalapeno half. Arrange stuffed halves on a sheet pan. (I like to line mine with foil.) Place a piece of bacon top of top each popper and press down slightly.

  4. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly and lightly browned. 

  5. Serve immediately.
