A simple 3-ingredient appetizer that is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful night celebrating the New Year and that it was filled with good food! For our New Year’s Eve party this year we made these simple Bacon Jalapeno Poppers. Crazy for how good it is there is only 3-ingredients! It was pretty funny because at the party everyone kept thanking me for bringing such a delicious appetizer. They were all going crazy over it! But in truth it was my husband’s idea to make these and he did most the work. haha
I was excited to try this recipe but not sure if it’d be too spicy for me but it was actually great! We spooned out all the seeds but if you like it spicier you could keep some.
To make this all you need to do is half the jalapenos, remove the seeds, stuff with cream cheese and wrap in bacon! Bake it and you’ve got a yummy appetizer everyone will love! How much bacon you wrap around it will depend on the size of your jalapenos. We couldn’t find small ones so we ended up needing 3/4 a strip for most jalapenos halves. So before you cut your bacon test out the size of the bacon strip you will need before cutting it.

- 20 whole Fresh Jalapenos, 2-3 inches
- 12-16 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
- 1 pound bacon
- Cut jalapenos in half, length-wise. With a spoon, remove the seeds and white membrane (leave some if you want it spicier.) Smear softened cream cheese into each jalapeno half. Check how much of the bacon slice you’ll need to wrap around the jalapenos then cut it to the needed size. Wrap jalapeno with bacon pieces. Secure by sticking toothpick through the middle.
- Bake on a pan with a rack in a 400-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. If needed turn the oven to a low broil until bacon is to desired crispiness.
