Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers


  • 12 large jalapenos
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • bacon optional


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set aside.
  • Cut the tops off of the jalapenos and remove the seeds and membranes. Be sure to wear gloves to protect your hands from the heat of the peppers.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, red onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  • Fill each jalapeno half with the cream cheese mixture, using a small spoon or a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip.
  • If desired, wrap each jalapeno with a slice of bacon and secure with toothpicks.
  • Place the stuffed jalapenos on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bacon is crispy.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve as a snack or appetizer with your favorite dipping sauce.
    Enjoy your delicious stuffed jalapenos!
