Calories 198 kcal


  • 6 Large Jalapeno Peppers
  • 12 Slices Bacon
  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese Room Temperature
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes optional
  • 2/3 Cup Ham I used honey ham lunch meat finely chopped


  1. Wash the Jalapeno peppers under water, slice them in half lengthwise and clean out the seeds and membrane. Set aside.

  4. Wrap one slice of bacon around each of the peppers. Start at one end of the pepper and wrap the bacon around to the other end.

  5. Place on a preheated 400℉ grill and cook for 10 minutes on each side. I do recommend grilling the bottom of the peppers first. This way the cheese has time to bind together before turning over. If you like your bacon crispier you may want to grill for longer.

Recipe Notes

For the red pepper flakes, you could also sprinkle some on top of the cream cheese stuffing instead of mixing it into the cream cheese. 

These can also be made in an oven. On a baking rack that is on a cookie sheet, bake in a 400℉ oven for 30 minutes.
