Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers Recipe

One of the simplest jalapeno popper recipes we have, this easy-to-make dish uses just 3 ingredients to create an intensely flavorful dish. By themselves, it's hard to beat the taste of jalapenos, cheddar cheese, or bacon but combine them all together and you've got a winner.

Using different types of cheese in the stuffing is a great way to mix up the flavors of this dish. Cooking these on the grill is a great way to add some smokiness to the jalapeno poppers.

To help with the bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers recipes we recommend getting a jalapeno rack. You can definitely make poppers without one but we've found many uses for them including holding the peppers while you prep them. If you have a rack we recommend destemming and deseeding the jalapenos and leaving them whole from that point. It give them a little better presentation.
