Cream Cheese and Bacon Jalepeno Poppers

An even tempered low carb snack that's low in calories too.



  1. Cut the chili peppers in half lengthwise; scrape out seeds and membranes.
  2. Fill each half with cream cheese, but do not mound it. Four ounces should be just about the right amount for 8 average size jalapeno halves. If you have extra large peppers, make sure you have a full 8 ounces of cream cheese on hand.
  3. Wrap each with 1/2 slice raw bacon, making sure to start with the end on the bottom of the pepper. Stretch the bacon slightly to make it go all the way around each pepper once, then tuck ends underneath.
  4. Place cream cheese side up on foil-lined baking sheet. These can be assembled and chilled until just before baking and serving.
  5. Bake at 375° F (190° C) for 20-25 minutes.
  6. If bacon isn't quite done, broil a few more minutes to brown.

A great recipe, I used fat-free cream cheese, and uncured turkey bacon so that I would get more for my caloric dollar.

Also great with Feta cheese, and then grill outside. We have these in the summer all the time!

I have now made these twice for my fiance and I and they are wonderful! I will say (for any other clueless person like me) when you are taking the seeds out of the peppers WEAR GLOVES!! The first time I made them I did it with bare hands and I had to soak my hands in ice water the remainder of the night (nothing took away the burn). I wore gloves the next time! Also - we mixed in a few seeds with the cheeses to add a little more spice, and wrapped a few in percuitto, and that was good also!

Great for LCHF and Atkins.
Stuffing something with cheese instantly makes it better. If you wrap it in bacon, UNSTOPPABLE.
