Servings 220 poppers


  • 1 Propane Stove
  • 1 Propane Grill


  • 10 large Jalapenos sliced in half
  • 8 oz Cream cheese softened
  • 8 oz Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 pinch Salt and pepper
  • 6 slices Bacon cooked
  • 20 slices Bacon uncooked


  • Cut jalapeno peppers in half, spooning out the white flesh and seeds. Do not remove stems. Soak in water for 30 minutes to 1 hour for a mildly hot taste.
  • On a stope top, cook the bacon in a pan over medium heat until the fat renders and the bacon is crisp, about 8-10 minutes. Drain the bacon on paper towels and let them cool. Crumble them into a mixing bowl, but reserve some for topping.
  • Add the softened cream cheese, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, and spices to the mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. It should be nice and creamy.
  • Stuff jalapeno halves with the spiced cream cheese mixture.
  • Wrap the stuffed jalapenos with a slice of bacon. Secure with toothpicks.
  • Heat a propane grill to medium heat and grill the jalapeno poppers for 15-20minutes, until the bacon cooks through.
  • Remove from heat and cool them just a bit. Garnish with extra crumbled bacon.
