  • 8 medium jalapenos
  • 6 oz ground beef
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 oz Cream Cheese
  • Salt + Pepper


  • Place ground beef in a pan on medium heat and allow it to fully cook. Season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool.
  • Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove the seeds.
  • Spread cream cheese inside each jalapeno half. Don't overfill with cream cheese or it will be hard to fit the ground beef in!
  • Add the ground beef on top of the cream cheese.
  • Cut each slice of bacon in half length-wise. Wrap the bacon around the jalapeno, being sure to trap all of the fillings in. We use 1/2 slice of bacon per popper.
  • Place poppers on a baking rack and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. If you do not have a baking rack a simple baking sheet will work. Enjoy!
