  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix together the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, corn, salt, and black pepper in a bowl.
  3. Fill the jalapeno halves with the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Wrap each stuffed pepper with bacon, securing it with a toothpick. Be sure the toothpick pokes through the bacon as well as the pepper.
  5. Place the poppers face down on the grill over direct heat. Grill until bacon is crispy and brown, about 5 minutes; turn the poppers over and grill until bacon is crisp on other side, 5 more minutes.


  • Cook's Note
  • These can also be cooked in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

We made them exactly as original recipe stated. We found them to be without much taste.

I make this recipe all the time without corn BUT I roll the bacon wrapped jalapeno in a mixture of brown sugar and chili powder! Absolutely love them and so do all my friends and family! My moth...

Loved the corn added to the mixture for this popper. It gave the popper more substance and they were very filling. I used jalapeños and mini red, yellow and orange peppers for the people who c...

When using a bacon-wrapped recipe, I always half-fry the bacon before wrapping - it guarantees crisp results. Excellent recipe along-side rumaki.

I love making these, but I like to drop the heat and cook longer. I go about 325-340 for about 40 minutes. Bacon renders nicely and the peppers get a nice roasted quality to them. Plus, you can ...

I made these without the corn. My husband made fun of me for making about 50 of them, said there was no way our little crowd would eat that many. Well guess what, everyone loved them and they ...

Awesome recipe. Added chives and chopped bacon and added to cheese mix as opposed to wrapping pepper with it. Baked at 400 degrees for 20 min. Deeeelicious!

These are to die for! Made them for a 4th of July party, and they were gone in no time... I used red sweet peppers that were the same size as jalapenos and baked them (broiled at the end) in t...

I didn't have bacon or corn but I did sprinkle real bacon bits on top and they came out uber delicious! Mine were done in 15 minutes in the oven at 400 degrees. Very easy to make!
