Bacon Wrapped Poppers


  • 12 jalapeños
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 12 ounces bacon
  • 1 tablespoon Ranch Seasoning
  • toothpicks


  1. Cut the jalapeños lengthwise and remove the seeds, leaving the stem intact. It is a good idea to wear gloves for this step.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese and Ranch Seasoning. Mix well to combine.
  3. Spoon a dollop of cream cheese inside each jalapeño shell. Trim bacon to fit, and wrap a slice around each popper, covering as much of the cream cheese as you can. Secure the bacon with a toothpick.
  4. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium heat, and oil the grate. Place the poppers on the grill, cream cheese side up, and cook for 3-5 minutes, until the bacon is crispy.
  5. Flip the poppers and repeat. Some of the cream cheese might escape during this step, but that's okay.
  6. Arrange the grilled poppers on a platter and devour!


For more great flavor combinations, try substituting New Mexico Chili Powder or Habanero Garlic Pepper in place of the Ranch Seasoning.

  1. can you bake these in the oven?

    • Sherrie says:

      Absolutely. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.Bake poppers for about 20-25 minutes on a foil-lined sheet tray until bacon is crispy and the jalapeno is blistered. If you’re using thick-cut bacon, you may need to let them bak for another 5 – 10 minutes.
