"These poppers are a hit when grilled or done in the oven. There are never any leftovers! Be sure to grill these first and serve as an appetizer to your guests and pair it with a frosty cold beer!"

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix together the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, corn, salt, and black pepper in a bowl.
  3. Fill the jalapeno halves with the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Wrap each stuffed pepper with bacon, securing it with a toothpick. Be sure the toothpick pokes through the bacon as well as the pepper.
  5. Place the poppers face down on the grill over direct heat. Grill until bacon is crispy and brown, about 5 minutes; turn the poppers over and grill until bacon is crisp on other side, 5 more minutes.

Saved the best for last. Just when I thought I was not going to find a popper recipe that sounded right....i got to the last one. And just in time for Superbowl!! Love the crunch of the corn and...

I make this recipe all the time without corn BUT I roll the bacon wrapped jalapeno in a mixture of brown sugar and chili powder! Absolutely love them and so do all my friends and family! My moth...

Loved the corn added to the mixture for this popper. It gave the popper more substance and they were very filling. I used jalapeños and mini red, yellow and orange peppers for the people who c...

When using a bacon-wrapped recipe, I always half-fry the bacon before wrapping - it guarantees crisp results. Excellent recipe along-side rumaki.

I love making these, but I like to drop the heat and cook longer. I go about 325-340 for about 40 minutes. Bacon renders nicely and the peppers get a nice roasted quality to them. Plus, you can ...

I made these without the corn. My husband made fun of me for making about 50 of them, said there was no way our little crowd would eat that many. Well guess what, everyone loved them and they ...

I didn't have bacon or corn but I did sprinkle real bacon bits on top and they came out uber delicious! Mine were done in 15 minutes in the oven at 400 degrees. Very easy to make!

These are to die for! Made them for a 4th of July party, and they were gone in no time... I used red sweet peppers that were the same size as jalapenos and baked them (broiled at the end) in t...

Terrific recipe, Bennyh. The addition of the crisp/fresh corn kernels made the recipe exceptional. If I have particularly hot-smelling jalapenos, I de-seed them under running water, to help wi...
