Imagine. You have just been invited to a picnic and, of course, you have to bring something to eat. Stuffed jalapenos are a perfect option since they take 1 hour until they are ready to be consumed!

Cream cheese and bacon stuffed jalapeños

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the jalapenos in half.
  3. Stuff each jalapeño half with whipped cream cheese.
  4. Wrap a half slice of bacon around each stuffed jalapeño half.
  5. Place the wrapped jalapeño halves in one layer on a medium baking sheet.
  6. Bake the peppers in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the bacon is evenly browned and crisp.
  7. Finished.

Shrimp and cheese stuffed jalapeños

  1. Parboil the peppers. Do this for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the water and set aside.
  2. Peel the shrimp. Chop into ⁄2 inch (1.3 cm) pieces.
  3. Grate the cheese.
  4. Mix the cream cheese, grated cheese and shrimp together.
  5. Add seasonings. Add salt and pepper to taste, and the garlic powder and cumin.
  6. Cut the peppers lengthwise. Scoop out the middle seeds and the membranes.
    • Wear gloves when doing this and do not rub your eyes or nose while handling the peppers.
  7. Stuff the cheese mixture inside the halved peppers. Wrap with either bacon or prosciutto.
  8. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at a moderate temperature for 25 minutes, until the outside wrap turns crispy.
  9. Serve straight from the oven.


Cream cheese and bacon stuffed jalapeños :
  • 12 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 (8 ounce) package whipped cream cheese
  • 12 slices bacon, cut in half
Shrimp and cheese stuffed jalapeños :
  • 24 large jalapeno peppers, the larger the better
  • 48 large shrimp
  • 10oz cheddar or any other cheese
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 48 small pieces of bacon or prosciutto for wrapping the jalapeno halves


  • This recipe should make about 24 stuffed jalapeños, enough for about 4-7 people. You may wish to divide the ingredients by 2 if you are making the peppers for just yourself, or a smaller group of people.
  • Instead of using an oven, you could try grilling the jalapeños.
  • Remove the seeds and veins if you prefer it to be less spicy.
  • After wrapping the bacon around the pepper, put a toothpick through it to help keep it from falling off.
  • Try mixing the Cream Cheese with chopped sun dried tomatoes for a great flavor and texture.
  • Add an equal amount of manchego, Queso asadero or Queso Oaxaca (Monterey Jack can be used if you can't find them)to the cream cheese as well as a dash of smoked paprika.


  • And don't handle jalapeños with your bare hands, the capsaicin can burn your hands for hours.
  • Be sure to allow the peppers at least 5-10 minutes to cool so you don't burn yourself.
