Original recipe yields 24 stuffed jalapenos

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Fill the jalapeno peppers with cream cheese. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning on top, then wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Arrange the wrapped jalapeno peppers in a single layer, face down on a broiler rack.
  3. Broil in the preheated oven until the bacon becomes crisp, 8 to 15 minutes on each side.

I've made these for years. Everytime I make them they are the first app to go. I haven't tried with the cajun seasoning but will next time. One thing to add is finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese stuffed right on top of the cream cheese and before you wrap in the bacon. ALTERNATE COOKING METHOD: Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes until the bacon is nearly done then broil them for about 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon. WATCH them when they are broiling so they don't burn. If you just broil them, I find the bacon comes out charred in some places and fatty and limp in others, and you don't have to flip them with this method. Also, cook on a rack with a cookie sheet so they are not sitting in the rendered fat of the bacon.....I've done these 30+ times and expierimented with the cooking method.

Fantastic twist to the usual jalapeno popper. After reading reviews I pulled it off like this: Did all the recommended prep plus baked the jalapenos for 15 minutes at 350 to lessen the heat. Let them cool a couple of minutes so I could handle them and filled them with a mixture of 1/2 tub of whipped cream cheese, 1/4 cup or so of cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup parmesean cheese, and 1 teaspoon seasoning (Costco no salt seasoning). Took the 1/2 slice of bacon, wrapped it around and put them cheese side up in the 350 oven. Change it to low broil and kept an eye on them for 5-10 minutes until the cheese started to brown and the bacon was lightly crisped. Heaven, heaven, heaven!!! There was a little crunch in the jalapeno which was nice so you got a couple of good bites without dragging the filling all out. Enough heat in the jalapeno to be flavorful and not burn your tongue off so you can't taste the next one. Delish! Will certainly do this again and again and again!

These are fantastic!! I also added some chopped pineapple and garlic powder to the cream cheese. Everyone loved them! Also added a sprinkle of brown sugar over the bacon for extra yum. Just used plain bacon. Rather than broiling, bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes to take out some of the bite of the peppers.
