Bacon Wrapped Cajun Jalapenos

Prep: 20 min | Bake: 25 min | Yield: 16 servings, 1 each


  • 8 large jalapeno peppers
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 8 thick-sliced peppered bacon strips


  1. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese and Cajun seasoning. Stuff about 1 1/2 teaspoons into each pepper half.
  3. Cut bacon strips in half widthwise.
  4. In a large skillet, cook bacon until partially cooked but not crisp.
  5. Wrap a bacon piece around each pepper; secure with a wooden pick.
  6. Place on a wire rack in a shallow baking pan.
  7. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
  8. Discard wooden picks. Serve immediately.


Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
