  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened (2 packages)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fine yellow onion
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 25 slices of thin bacon cut in half crosswise (approx 2 lbs)
  • 25 fresh jalapenos
  • For preparation:
  • Rubber gloves for handling the jalapenos
  • Toothpicks
  1. Preheat the oven to 275 F. Wearing gloves slice the jalapeno in half-length wise. Use a teaspoon to gently scrap out the membranes and seeds from each half. If you want them a little spicy, leave a few seeds but not too many, they will be hot!
  2. In a bowl beat the cheeses, onion and garlic together with a mixer. Usin a teaspoon fill each jalapeno half with the cheese mix.
  3. Wrap half a piece of bacon around each filled jalapeno, covering as much of the cheese as possible.
  4. Use a toothpick or wooden skewer to secure the bacon, place jalapenos on a rack over a sheet pan to catch the bacon grease, and bake in the preheated oven for about an hour, or until the bacon is sizzling.
Recipe Notes

Can be halved easily.
Can be made without the bacon for a vegetarian version.
