We loved these! Mine did take longer to cook, than stated (about 40 mins. or so), but other than that, they were great. I added a bit of garlic powder to the cheese mixture, just because. I was glad to use up some jalapenos from the garden...I will def be making thiese again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

I have no idea what I did differently than everyone else but these were so hot that we could not eat them. I'm not sure if the jalapenos I bought were another kind of pepper or WHAT. I love jalapeno poppers as an appetizer in a restaurant but these went straight into the garbage. Also the cheese oozed out of most of them because of the extended baking time (35 minutes). Read More

Everyone keeps saying they take longer than the recipe states. This is a very simple fix-I always pre-fry the bacon half way before I wrap the jalapenos. Then I broil them for 4-5 minutes instead of baking them, and they are awesome!!!!! People beg me to bring them to get-togethers!!!! Read More

These were devine. I used November! garden Jalapenos and they were on the small side so I cut the bacon in thirds, just enough to go round and secure with toothpick and I also cooked them longer so the bacon was crisp but boy were they GOOD! This a great little snack to add to other little snacks that you can make ahead of time and serve for company. I NEVER write reviews butyou really have to try these. So much better than the fried poppers. Read More

These are standard but good. To address some issues: 1) If the peppers are too hot, you may not have cleaned the ribs/veins/membranes well enough. Use a spoon and remove all the "light green/white" lines. This is where the heat is. 2) If your cheese is "melting out" you didn't use cream cheese or not enough. If you want to use just cheddar or another melty cheese, pre-cook the bacon so it is cooked but still limp, then reduce the cooking time in the oven. 3) If you like crispy bacon...cooking timn is about 35 mins. 4) Feel free to mix other things in with the cheese. Some barbecue seasonings and garlic salt work well. Read More

They did take longer to cook than listed although I like my bacon crisp. I switched to the broiler for 5-10 minutes longer and they were perfect. Read More

Love em! I use small jalapenos and I substitute jack cheese for the cheddar. After I slice the peppers I microwave them for 1 minute then stuff them. I cut turkey bacon into thirds and lay it over the top instead of wrapping the pepper because it cooks the bacon more evenly. You can't tell the difference between the regular bacon and the turkey bacon once these things are done. They are DIVINE and it's the one thing all of my friends ask me to bring to any of our get togethers. Read More

Delicious but they cook a little faster if you wrap the halves in bacon instead of putting the halves back together. Worth a try if you're considering this recipe. Read More

This recipe is awesome and works terrific on the grill! I recommend cooking them in "halves" as opposed to putting the halves together (I used just 1/2 bacon slice per 1/2 jalepeno) and this also helps in a faster cooking time. For grilling I'd also recommend to put toothpicks through each assembled piece to keep the bacon from falling off. Read More

I wanted to make a some carb-friendly food for the 48th SB this year and these were a hit. The only real problem that I had is that I did not make enough. I did take the advice of a comment to turn on the broiler on for a few minutes after the time to get crispier bacon I love crispy bacon. I also used 1/2 bacon strips and didn't put the jalapeno halves back together as the recipe said and instead left them in halves. Great recipie! I will make these again. Read More
