Jalapeno Poppers


Let's make Jalapeno Poppers using the jalapenos you harvest from your garden. They make a great appetizer or snack and are easy to make.

If you live in Texas, chances are you are growing jalapenos in your backyard garden. We have jalapenos growing now in San Antonio and have already picked our first harvest. 

Jalapeno Poppers

You will need garden fresh jalapenos, softened cream cheese, and uncooked bacon. You should also have a cookie sheet with a cooling rack to bake them on.

Preheat your oven to 425°. For ease of clean up, spray the cooling rack with cooking spray.

Wash your fresh jalapenos, then cut them in half lengthwise. Cut off the top end. Scoop out the pith and seeds. If you didn't know, the seeds are where the heat comes from in hot peppers. The heat is cut down greatly when all pits are removed.

Fill the jalapeno halves with softened cream cheese. Wrap with a hole slice of uncooked bacon. Place on cooling rack on your cookie sheet. See photo below.

Bake on a cookie sheet with a cooling rack to let the bacon grease drain off. If you don't have one, Amazon has them. That is where we got ours.

Bake your poppers for about 30 minutes at 425° Fahrenheit, until bacon is colorful and a bit crispy.
