try to boil the bacon before you start. it is still close to the texture of uncooked bacon, and you can still wrap it around the pepper, and use the toothpick to hold it, but you cook off the fat, so your bacon gets crunchy in the oven instead of greasyRead More
As written, this recipe is just too greasy for my tastes. The filling was awesome and the peppers were perfect but the bacon was not good. It was under cooked and made everything a greasy mess. I made a few with just bacon bits on top and they turned out perfect. Next time I make these I will use about half the amount of bacon, cook it first and crumble it on top before baking to cut down on the grease.Read More

These were fantastic, followed the recipe exactly. The only difference was that I doubled the cook time as I like my bacon a little more well done. I did soak the peppers in iced water for 10 minutes before using, which just took a little of the hot flavour out, but they still had a kick. Will certainly be making these again.
Absolutely DELISH. Since my husband and I can't really do super spicy things, I soaked the sliced and deseeded peppers in a bowl of ice water for a few hours to take out some of the heat. I added a dash of basil to the mixture and it gave it a bit more flavor. Once I take them off the pan I place them between paper towels to soak up some of the excess grease from the bacon. These are a must-have at all of my potlucks at work, and my husband's platoon gatherings once a month. They're usually the first food to vanish!
Best stuffed jalapeno recipe EVER. I used the precooked bacon sold with the regular bacon because it is pliable enough to wrap but since it's precooked it browns quickly and crisply (I sometimes have problems with regular bacon not crisping up).
For those that don't like the grease issue from the bacon, throw them on the grill. The grease goes through to the coals and gives it a whole new level.
A little too salty for my taste. Next time I will reduce the amount of ranch dressing and garlic just a tad. Overall great recipe.
I would rate this recipe higher if I could! These are absolutely amazing. As some other reviewers suggested I soaked the peppers in ice water for a few hours. I also put a wire cooling rack on top of a baking sheet and baked the peppers on that so the bacon would crisp up all around and so the grease would drain off. The result was one of the best appetizers I've ever tasted!
Everyone loved these. YUM. I made the recipe as is. WEAR GLOVES when cutting the jalapenos! I wasn't thinking and my hands burned for HOURS even with every remedy I could find on the internet!
These are sooooo good! I love stuffed jalapenos but don't like the breaded or deep fried ones. My hubby can't quit telling EVERYONE about them, and wants me to make them for EVERYONE he tells. Next I want to try with fat free cr. cheese,fat free mayo, and turkey bacon. Gotta watch those calories! LOL
I have not made this yet, but similar ones. To reduce "heat" make sure you cut out all the VEIN that the seeds grow on. Makes the jalapenos very mild that way.
Didn't have the dried ranch packet, but substituted with a splash of ranch dressing, they were a great hit! The only down side was just slightly greasy, but delicious none the less!
Love this recipe but I made one change. I never have any luck getting the bacon crisp enough in any recipe that is "bacon wrapped". So, after stuffing the peppers,, I topped them with imitation bacon bits and baked them at 400 for 10 minutes. You don't need to cook as long because you are not trying to crisp the bacon. Absolutely fantastic! Great flavor and the crunch of the bits puts them over the top. It also eliminates the bacon grease factor of the original recipe.
This was the best recipe I have tried on this site for jalapeno poppers not fried. I basically followed the recipe with just a few changes. 1. I have a jalapeno rack so I left them whole & cored them out, leaving a few seeds for heat. 2. I used mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar because I didn't have any. 3. To make the mixture thin enough to pipe into the jalapenos, I thinned the mixture out with a couple TBSP of milk. 4. I put the mixture in a plastic baggy and cut the tip off to pipe it into the jalapenos. 5. Then I topped each one with approximately a 1/4 piece of bacon folded up and placed on top. 6. Cooked according to directions.
I have made this recipe more times than I would like to admit and have discovered how to get great finishes on it by using these tips: To get the bacon crispy: Buy thin bacon, or use a rolling pin and flatten out thick bacon. Mild cheddar cheese seems to get the best results. Also, if you do not have dry ranch salad dressing, you can make your own by using about a tablespoon (more or less, just equal amount of both) each of garlic and onion powder. I tend to taste it after stirring to make it just right. Lastly, after mixing all the ingredients, I let them infuse for about 20 to 30 minutes before stuffing the peppers.
Made as is and they were awesome! Make sure you use the broiler pan as the directions state. If you use a baking sheet they will be sitting in grease.

Wish I could give more stars!! I served these last night at our Christmas Party.These were AWESOME!!! I only got to eat 2 out of 44! I couldn't keep them on the serving tray. I had 4 peppers left and some filling and am cooking them as I type :)!
I had jalapenos in the freeze from my in-laws garden so they were not as crispy as fresh jalapenos - so I ended up chopping them up and using it as a dip (all the same ingredients. Served with beer bread. Yummy yummy!
These are so good, they were gone in no time! I only used 1/2 packet of of ranch mix and substituted sour cream for the mayo.
WOW. had a get together last night everyone loved these! It took about 40mins to bake in the oven but totally worth the wait.
Yummy! Didn't have ranch seasoning so omitted the mayo and just put 1/4 cup of ranch dressing. Precooked bacon in skillet about halfway and blotted on paper towels. Baked on cookie cooling rack inside shallow lip pan. Did remove all veins and seeds with melon baller, but luckily didn't have time to soak in cold water and they were not too hot at all. Only took about 15 minutes precooking bacon. We will definitely be making these again. I think the ranch flavoring is what others I have tried have been missing.
I made these appetizers for my July 4th party. They were a big hit and were the first to go. ( I will need to double up on this recipe next time). I did replace the cheddar cheese for sharp cheddar Yum Yum....
Wow, these were easy to make and were DELICIOUS. I ran out of cheddar so used some mozza and it worked just fine. I think I kinda overstuffed them because they kind of oozed out...but the combination of the cheese mixture, the jalepeno and the bacon was amazing. They were even good cold the next morning! Thanks!
Always a party hit! Best recipe!
Great recipe, everyone asks for it! I use the precooked bacon just because it's easier and less greasy. Remove all seeds and white part inside jalapeno. If it's too hot soak jalapenos in ice water for 10 minutes, it will lose some of the heat. Love it!
This is the sort of appetizer you just can't stop eating!! They were just the right level of spicy too! I would also suggest partially cooking the bacon before the final rolling step. Really crisped it up nicely! I had enough filling for 10 large jalapenos (each cut in half, so of course I had 20 halves) so I used the equal amount of bacon half pieces, which used a bit less than the pound.
Oh Boy are these good! Since it was so cold out, I baked these in the oven on some cooling racks inside of a jelly roll pan. That lets the greese drip down away from the snacks. My family begs for these all the time. Thanks for a great recipe.
Made these for a Superbowl Sunday gathering, and man are they ever a major hit! Love these, if I could give them 10 stars, I would. (Consider wearing gloves while de-seeding the peppers, though. My cuticles on on fire!)
We loved these! I eyeballed cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, powdered garlic and about 1/4 tsp. of steak seasoning and stuffed the jalapenos. Before I wrapped with a 1/2 slice of bacon, I boiled the bacon to remove the excess grease (thank you previous poster for this tip). This process ensures that the bacon crisps up nicely. Also, as an after thought, I made ranch dressing and put in a ramiken as a dipping sauce. Excellent!!
Made these just to try them. They are amazing. I actually left a few seeds because we enjoy the spice. Just the right bite with the cheese mixure.
I loved how easy and tasty this recipe is. My husband loved it. I personally added rice to the side dish to make it a full course meal.
Easy and delicious!!
I can't rave enough about these. While they aren't the healthiest, they taste fantastic! I cooked mine on the grill and they were awesome. My husband, daughter and I also ate them cold out of the fridge the next day, and they were still good! Next time I'm going to try lower fat versions of the original and still see if the flavor stays true. My toothpicks kept breaking as I tried to stick them through, so I just wrapped the bacon tightly and didn't even use the toothpicks. I also soaked the peppers in water to kill the heat a bit, but next time I'm going to leave them as is to give them a little more bite!
After my brother discovered these 2 summers ago and we all fell in love with them, they have made an appearance at almost every event!! Wickedly delicious!!!
YUM! These are so good! I followed the recipe exactly as written and was pleased with how they came out. The filling cuts the spice of the peppers a little, which I appreciate. Thanks for sharing! :)
I made these for New Year's and they were a hit. My husband loved these. Will definitely save and use this recipe again in the very near future!
love love love these made them for our family Christmas party and everyone gobbled them right up i even used the rest of the filling in some stuffed mushrooms just added some breadcrumbs
This recipe was awesome, the only thing I did differently was use the pre-cooked bacon from oscar mayer. The bacon came out beautifully crisp. I would of taken a picture but hands would of been in the picture! The football fans loved them!! Thanx Mrs.H !!!
Very tasty. I soaked halved and seeded jalapenos in ice water for 2 hours to mellow out the heat a bit. I substituted sour cream for mayo and used turkey bacon bits for a healthier, less greasy, treat. I also added two tablespoons of chopped cilantro. Delicious!
These were fabulous--made them for a party and they were a big hit. Comments: 1) I used turkey bacon and it works better than pig bacon, IMO, because it has more "stretch" for the wrapping part and isn't as greasy. 2) I used shredded mexican cheese because I had that on hand and the flavor was wonderful. 3) I recommend getting big, firm jalapeno peppers--the bigger they are, the easier they are to de-seed. I used a melon baller to clean mine out and it worked great. Super recipe!
These were very good but extremely salty. I made half with bacon and half without. The ones with bacon were to salty to eat. I will make them again but I will reduce the amount of dressing mix. Hopefully that will help.
I used turkey bacon. I laid one piece (half of a strip) on each pepper and didn't need the tooth picks. Surprisingly, I didn't have any problems with the bacon falling off either.
I make these ALL of the time for parties. I always freeze a few extra for later! The ranch gives is a nice blend with the bacon and heat of jalepeno. Don't try to make without toothpicks. I tried it and they were very messy!
All that I have to say is YUM, YUM, YUM. These will become a staple on my football buffets. The only thing I did different was dipped them in bread crumbs before baking because I noticed that in my first batch, the cheese somewhat melted outside the pepper. The second batch, which was dipped, didn't have that problem and the taste really wasn't altered. Also, make sure you use medium sized peppers, otherwise you will not get the number of pepper/filling ratio.
Enjoyed by all. I used the last jalapenos from our garden and they were not hot at all...just good pepper flavor mixed with cheese and bacon...perfect. I did grill this batch, but have baked them and been very satisfied with the taste also. Excellent recipe!
Um......these are delicious. So simple....why didn't I think if these?! Anyway, glad someone did- thanks for sharing!
Awesome recipe. Made it exactly as the recipe says but I did decide to cook them on a broiler rack for drainage since some of the reviews said they were a little greasy. This was easier than pre-cooking the bacon at all and worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing!!
The jalapeno Popper were an A...my only grief was I had so much cheese mix left over. That is where the magic happened! I added that to elbow pasta with fresh sliced jalapenos, Bacon, mushrooms, and a little splash of milk....wow jalapeno Popper Mac & cheese!!!!
how can you go wrong with these ingredients? these were perfect for a dinner with friends when you can hang out in the kitchen and prepare things together while catching up.
Wow! Good stuff!
Love these! Because some jalapenos are hotter than others I've gotten in the habit of either wearing gloves or boiling first to eliminate the burn on my hands after halving and seeding.
These are great!! I didn't wrap in bacon but added finely chopped bacon to the cheese mixture. Everyone loved them!
Totally deilcious! I have never made these in the oven only on the grill so I was so worried that thy bacon wouldn't get crisp enough. It did! Thanks!
These were delicious and unique. They were all gone at the party and got rave reviews. The only thing I would do differently is the bacon. I'm not sure it was necessary.
AMAZING!!!!! My taste buds came to life! I have been working on crazy ideas for jalapeno poppers everyday this week and this took the cake! SO BOMB!
Wonderful! Ingredients used as written. From other comments I soaked the jalepeno peppers in ice water for a few hours and baked on a rack. Fantastic taste! (We did not find them too salty.)
Use Herb & Garlic Cream Cheese, fresh minded garlic and add Tex-Mex shredded cheese and stuff the peppers. The best.
I made these but tweaked it by skewering the jalaeno (for my hubby) and banana peppers (for me) and hanging them from muffin tins- bacon got super crispy and a lot of the grease dripped out!!
Very tasty, but a bit salty. The bacon didn't get crisp but I had to take them out of the oven as the filling was melting out. Looked a mess but tasted very good!
They were definitely decent. But they needed more flavor, some spice or something. But they were something I'd definitely serve again with short notice.
these are really good! i like to use the fat free herb and garlic cream cheese. then i dont add the ranch dressing mix. sooo good!!!!!
Baking on a broiler pan made all the difference. They were crispy all around. Everyone ate them up.
Yummy. Too greasy, but I did not use a broiler pan where the grease would have gone through.
Made this last year for New Year's Eve and was such a hit I'm making again this year. I think the recipe is just the right balance of heat and flavor as is, but my group likes a lot of heat so I added some finely chopped jalepenos to the cream cheese mixture and some smoked paprika to add a little deepth to the flavor to balance the additional jalapenos.
These are absolutely delicious! I actually cooked them on the grill rather than baking and they turned out fabulous. Next time though I think I will cut the garlic powder and ranch dressing mix in half because they overpower that great cream cheese flavor. Definitely worth trying!
Mike LOVED them. Personally, I would only give them 3.5 stars. I found the taste very meaty (and I used turkey bacon!). But, since they were such a hit, I'll be making them again.
These are absolutely amazing! The cream cheese makes it very rich, so you can't eat too many at once. (As tempting as that is)
Edited Review: My husband asks for these ALL of the time. They are amazing with turkey bacon! I highly recommend you try these out. Besides the turkey bacon, no other adjustments are needed.
WOW! Tasty! We loved them. We have had him battered before, but never with the bacon wrapped around them. Much nicer with the bacon! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I need a "Family LOVES" recipe folder now after this one!
Super good! The only thing I did differently, because of the bacon I had - thick sliced, peppered. I precooked the bacon in the oven for about 20 minutes. I don't know if my bacon was too short/thick or my peppers too big or both. So I couldn't wrap the bacon around the pepper so I just layed the bacon on top of the peppers. Then I ran out of bacon so I wrapped a few in salami. They were really good. I will definitely make these again!
I've tried a few other recipes for stuffed jalapenos, but these are the best. When we have a family get together these are always requested. Thanks for sharing!
a little on the greasy side but overall very good. I might cook bacon separately next time and top with crushed bacon for the grease issue.- after further playing around I make sure I use regular and not thick cut bacon. I also half cook it and drain it well then wrap bacon around pepper and finish off... Awesome dish and after a couple of years I am now requested to make these for get-togethers
These are the BEST!!!! I am always getting requests to make these. Thank you for sharing!
This was delicious, although I didn't totally follow the recipe...I just put veggie cream cheese with the cheddar, and skipped the mayo, ranch and garlic. I used the broiler for about 5 mintues after baking for 20.
Very delicious and easy to make. Didn't change much just did half cheddar and half mozzarella .
These made great finger foods for the party I had at my house. At the end of the night there were pretty much all gone. This recipe really makes a lot so I was surprised to see only two left on the place! I did run out of bacon when I made these so I had made some without the bacon and people still thought they tasted great. It was a good teaser as I brought the baconless ones out first and then the bacon ones came out and everywhere went wild! Awesome recipe!
I have made these and pass the recipe to my father who also has made these for many occasions...I followed recipe but I did cook them a little longer. I cook them in the oven on a cookie rack that sits on top a cookie sheet covered in foil so the grease isnt an issue. My dad likes to cook them on the grill. Either way they still taste great. Making them again for Thanksgiving appetizers!
I just made these for a football party we had, and they were a hit. I always put a lot of time into making tasty-good hearty appetizers, but this particular recipe gave me the most rave reviews ever. Two guys told me that it was one of the best things they've ever eaten. My husband is on his way to the grocery store right now to buy more ingredients so I can make more for him today. I followed the recipe perfectly. THANK YOU for the great recipe, I plan to use this one often! :)
HUGE hit! These are delicious!! Next time I'll pre-cook the bacon a bit but otherwise wouldn't change a thing! Awesome!!
These things are absolutely delicious! I picked all my home grown peppers to make these and they were so good that I had to go to the store and buy more for another snack tonight!
These were fantastic. I left the bacon off because I didn't have any on hand. They were good even without the bacon.
Great recipe! I cooked my bacon ahead of time,crumbled and sprinkled on top a minute or two before it was done. Delicious! Thanks for sharing
These snacks had great flavor, but the bacon took quite a bit longer to cook than indicated. I doubled cooking time and my guests still found the bacon to be slightly undercooked. I would suggest broiling until bacon is browned.
These were very good but I thought they were just a little too salty. Next time I will omit the ranch dressing mix and add garlic powder and chopped green onions in its place.
I saved this recipe over a year ago and finally got around to making it due to some awesome jalapenos in my garden. I used a raised rack over a cookie sheet in the oven to alleviate the grease issue and it worked well. There were 5 of us and all of these disappeared in less than 10 minutes.
My husband and I fixed these today for the playoffs. They were great, very rich so could not eat a lot of them but next time we have a get together, they will be on our menu.
GREATEST APP OF ALL TIME! My husband planted 46 pepper plants so we ate these every night all summer. We left off the bacon and I took the seeds out so they are not hot at all. I craved these all winter long so we used this recipe in frozen jalapenos and cooked them in the oven or toaster oven. I took these to work and people raved about it and wanted the recipe! THANKS FOR THE PERFECT JALAPENO POPPER!!!!
I took these to a superbowl party this past Sunday, and they were a huge hit! I was worried they would be too spicy for some of my friends, but they weren't very spicy at all. They were worth the work.
Quick, easy and crowd pleaser!
Very rich and delicious.
These are outstanding! Not hot at all! Ever since I started making these my boyfriend cant get enough of them, to be honest I loved these as well, but for how much he requests them, i am starting to get sick of them!
Made these for friends and they were a huge hit. I made the filling the night before and put them on my smoker the day of the party.....Yum!!!
big hit with everyone. first time i made as is. 2nd time, I got lazy and I put bacon bits in the cream cheese mixture. I was told that it was good both ways. Definitely will be making it again
These were delicious! I mixed up the filling by cooking some sausage in a skillet, draining the grease and mixed in low fat vegetable cream cheese. That's it...two ingredients for my stuffing. I also found that using a whole slice of bacon worked better in my case. I will be making these again, probably every Saturday for college game day!
I made these for a barbeque at my sister's house, and I was told that I am not required to bring them to every barbeque. They were sooo good!
