Cheddar and cream cheese gets stuffed into jalapeños and then wrapped in bacon and baked until the cheese is gooey, and the bacon is crispy!



8 largish jalapeño peppers

3 oz (85 g) sharp yellow cheddar, shredded

3 oz (85 g) full-fat cream cheese

8 slices bacon Avocado oil spray


01. Preheat the oven to 400F.

 02. Cut a thin line down the length of each pepper. The pepper should be cut so that only the inner ribs and seeds are left.

03. Use a fork to mash together the cheddar and cream cheeses in a small bowl.

 04. Stuff the cheese mixture into each pepper, closing each pepper up as much as possible.

05. Wrap a slice of bacon around the outside of each pepper, securing with a toothpick if necessary.

06. Lightly spray each popper with avocado oil.

07. Arrange the poppers on a large baking sheet and bake until the bacon is crispy, about 20 minutes. You can broil the poppers for a couple of minutes at the end if you want to brown them more.

08. Serve.
