Jalapeno Snacks Recipe


I know, I know how boring a bacon wrapped jalapeno snack. What’s so new about that? I wanted to put my own little spin on a finger food that’s easy for summer entertaining.

What You Need:

  • Jalapeno’s the larger and plumper the better. Buy what you need for how many you are cooking for.
  • Cream Cheese (I used an organic cream cheese out of preference)
  • Sharp cheddar cheese
  • Mexican oregano
  • black pepper
  • Center cut bacon.

How To Do It:

Allow cream cheese to soften at room temp for about an hour. Cut jalapeno’s in half and scoop out seeds and interior.

Combine 1 1/2 cups of cedar cheese to the softened cream cheese. Add 1 TBS of Mexican oregano and 1 tsp black pepper. Combine mixture until cheddar cheese is well blended into mix.

Stuff jalapenos. Mixture will stuck to the inside like pasta. Wrap in your favorite center cut bacon.

Place aluminum foil (I use a recycled aluminum foil) on top rack of the grill while you cook other things like burgers and steaks while entertaining. Cook for 20 minutes and plate and serve. Perfect bite sided treats with a little spice but not too much.
