Spicier, Cheesier Stuffed Jalapenos Wrapped in Bacon


Looking for spicier, cheesier appetizers? These jalapeno peppers stuffed with pepper Jack cheese and wrapped in bacon will fit the bill.


  • 12 jalapeno peppers
  • ½ (8 ounce) package pepper Jack cheese (such as Tillamook®)
  • 12 slices bacon
  • toothpicks


  1. Slice caps off the jalapeno peppers; reserve. Core and seed the peppers.
  2. Cut pepper Jack cheese into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Cut each slice into sticks the thickness of a pencil. Stuff jalapeno peppers with as many cheese sticks as will fit. Secure caps back on the jalapenos, using at least 2 toothpicks per pepper.
  3. Wrap 1 slice bacon around each jalapeno pepper. Keep bacon secure by skewering the end on one of the toothpicks.
  4. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill jalapeno peppers, watching for flare-ups, until bacon is browned, about 20 minutes.
