Could these poppers BE any better? I did make with bacon and there are 2 tips I have to offer when using real bacon: 1) Cook at 375 to 400 for about 30 mins, depending on how crispy you like the bacon. (at the 12 minute mark using 350 degrees, my bacon was raw) 2) Use a fatter, rounder cocktail toothpick and soak them in water for about 30 mins before using so that the bacon grease doesnt burn them in the oven. I will be making again. The men last night devoured these in about 20 minutes. So simple and so good!!!

I've made these four times now and use Philadephia cream cheese with chives. I also use regular bacon and just cut a slice into thirds and place it directly on top of the cream cheese filled jalapenos - a whole lot easier than wrapping them around each half and having to use a toothpick, You can also crank up the oven to 400.

This was great, and so easy! I used real bacon and I baked on a rack over a jelly roll pan in the oven to help drain off some of the grease. Thanks for the idea.
