"My husband and his friends love to munch on these when they get together to watch basketball or football. Warning!!! These are NOT for the taster who's mild at heart!! You can also bake the peppers in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes; broil 1 to 2 minutes to crisp the bacon. Red or yellow bell peppers cam be substituted to lower the heat."

  1. Preheat a grill for medium-high heat. When the grill is hot, lightly oil the grate. Soak toothpicks 20 minutes in water.
  2. Place the cream cheese in a bowl, and mix in the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and salt until evenly blended.
  3. Make one slit from end to end in the side of each jalapeno pepper, and scoop out the seeds. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into the center of each pepper. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each pepper, and secure with a toothpick.
  4. Place the peppers onto the preheated grill, and cook until peppers begin to soften, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Tip
  • You can also roast the jalapeno peppers in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the peppers begin to soften. To crisp the bacon, broil the peppers for 1 to 2 minutes.

Instead of just slitting the jalapenos, I cut out a wedge from the top and then replace the wedge after adding the filling and before wrapping with bacon. Note: if you do too good a job of scrap...

I initially thought basil and sundried tomatoes were an odd combination for jalapenos, but these were excellent! I used oil-packed sundried tomatoes that I rinsed and added a clove of garlic. ...

These are amazing! My husband and I are huge "hot" fans and this recipe does the trick! We use light cream cheese to cut back on calories a bit.

Wow! These are the most delicious stuffed jalapenos I've ever tasted. I was so curious about the cream cheese and the other ingredients...different from the usual cheese. I used the sunflower...

Excellent! We loved the basil & tomato in these. Only change was to use garlic powder in place of fresh because I didn't think the garlic would end up being cooked enough for our tastes - and I ...
