  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crisp, about 15 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.

  • Mix cream cheese, butter, and Cheddar cheese together in a bowl. Add lime zest, a squeeze of lime juice, and garlic. Fold serrano pepper into mixture; refrigerate until chilled and stiff, about 10 minutes.

  • Divide chilled cream cheese mixture into 6 equal parts and roll into balls to make the fat bombs.

  • Chop bacon and place in a bowl with cilantro. Roll 1 fat bomb at a time in the bowl to coat. Serve cold.

Cook's Note:

Use your favorite shredded cheese in place of Cheddar.
