Serves: 4
Smoked bacon are wrapped around cream cheese stuffed jalapeno and then roasted in the oven
  • Bacon (smoked) : 1 pack
  • Jalapenos : 6-8 or more
  • Cream cheese : 1 small pack
  • Salt and pepper for seasonings (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Wash and slit the jalapeno into halves, scoop out the membranes and seeds with the help of a spoon.
  3. Stuffed each half of the jalapeno with cream cheese.
  4. Wrap a slice of bacon snugly around the jalapeno and secure it with a toothpick.
  5. On an oven proof baking dish or you can use foil too, arrange the bacon and roast it in oven for 20 minutes.
  6. Served hot with chipotle flavored mayo or any other dipping sauce.
If you want to make it spicy, then leave some of the jalapeno membranes and it will add the spiciness to this appetizer.

Salt and pepper seasonings are optional, I did not use them.

I love the real flavour of bacon.


There are several variations to this recipe, I have tried it with cheese stuffed dates too and sometimes I do wrap the bacon around the chicken wings too. Use your imaginations.
