Tips for Making Jalapeno Poppers

  • Use fresh jalapenos for the best flavor, and if you want them to be a bit spicier, leave the seeds in. Remember not to touch your face until you’ve washed your hands.
  • If you don’t like jalapenos, you could easily substitute them with something else such as sweet peppers.
  • Folding the bacon in half with the fat inside the pepper keeps it from burning, so you’ll end up with juicy, smoky cool strips of bacon instead of crispy burnt ends.
  • Fill the peppers with the cheese before you wrap them in bacon so it will close and cook properly.  If you have difficulty getting your bacon closed, try wrapping it around the stem end of the pepper where it has more “give.”
