Oh My…  I cannot tell you how much I love this simple recipe!  I whipped these up today because I wanted to try them out as a game day recipe… I played around with a few ingredients because I wanted to get away from the traditional breaded Jalapeño Poppers!  It was late afternoon .. 3pm when they were finished!  I thought I would try just one.. just to see how they were.  I literally could NOT stop eating them and they became my dinner.. at 3pm!  Wow!  My new favorite appie for sure!!

Just a few simple ingredients to make these and you’ll be in heaven!  Sweet, salty, spicy, creamy… it’s got everything you could possibly need in one neat little package of yummy-ness!  The barbecue is optional but adds a lovely sticky-sweet glaze to these!

The spice in jalapeños is found in the seeds and inner membranes.  To reduce the heat in this recipe, make sure you clean out all of the (light colored) inner membrane and seeds.  When I cut the jalapeños, I start with the stem, I think it looks pretty to have the stem in tact, so I cut it first to make sure I keep it on both halves.

I really hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I loved creating it!

BBQ Bacon Jalapeño Poppers

Oh My…  I cannot tell you how much I love this simple recipe!  I whipped these up today because I wanted to try them out as a game day recipe… I played around with a few ingredients because I wanted to get away from the traditional breaded Jalapeño Poppers!

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 6 Slices of Bacon cut in half length wise
  • 1/2 Cup Spreadable Cream Cheese
  • 6 Jalapeño Peppers

Optional (this is where the bbq part comes in)

  • 2 tablespoons Barbecue Sauce

Directions:

  1. Slice the Jalapeños in half lengthwise, you might like to wear rubber gloves for this! (I use them for everything from handling meat to cleaning)
  2. Using a spoon, remove the seeds and light colored membrane (this is where the spice is!)
  3. Fill each pepper with cream cheese (I put some in a Ziploc and snipped off the corner and piped it into the peppers)
  4. Take a long strip of bacon and wrap it around the peppers, adhere each end with a toothpick (or the bacon will unravel during baking)
  5. Brush each popper with a light coating of barbecue sauce
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or grill on med-low until bacon is crisp

  1. I know this is 2 and a half years old, but I had to comment. Just made these on the BBQ today and they were FANTASTIC! With a 3 zone BBQ, I set the center one, below the food to low and the other 2 to med. This kept the temp at around 400. 18-20 minutes later, they were perfect.

  2. They are really good with Laughing Cow garlic and herb cream cheese
    and maple bacon!

  3. Yum! I’ve been thinking of trying some different recipes this year and this looks delicious…the addition of the maple syrup sounds delicious!

  4. these sound sooo yummy will be giving this recipe a try!!!
