Only 4 simple ingredients, these Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers are filled with cream cheese mixture and wrapped in crispy bacon.

  • 10 jalapeño peppers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese shredded
  • 5 strips thin-cut bacon cut in half
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper (for easy clean-up) and place a baking rack on top. Set aside.
  2. Wash and dry peppers. Cut in half lengthwise and remove pith and seeds.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cheeses and extra seasonings if using. Prepare avocado slices (if using) by cutting in lengthwise, removing the pit and skin, and slicing into thin slices. Cut bacon strips in half crosswise.
  4. Fill each pepper with the cheese mixture, top with an avocado slice, and wrap with ½ slice of bacon. Place peppers on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until bacon is fully cooked and crispy.
  6. Cool for 5-10 minutes to allow cheese to settle and transfer peppers to a serving platter. Enjoy warm or room temperature.
