Smoked Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

I’m a big fan of jalapeño poppers, however I am probably the only one in my house that does love them, and with that said, I don’t get to eat them all that often. Regardless, there are occasions, such as this past weekend that allowed me to come up with these smoked bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers. Jalapeño poppers themselves are really good, but the addition of a slow smoke made these things even better.

Unfortunately, I only had a couple of jalapeño peppers leftover from another recipe I was working on, and I say unfortunately because after eating these, they were awesome. Regardless, let’s get started.


  • 2 whole jalapeño peppers, stems removed, and cored
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 3 tbsp whipped cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese
  • smoker

Start by mixing the two cheese together in a small bowl. To each jalapeño pepper, carefully stuff each one with the cheese mixture.

How to make smoked bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers

Take a piece of bacon, and lengthwise, wrap the stuffed jalapeño pepper. You could secure with a toothpick if you desire, however I did not need to do that.

Place onto your smoker, and cook until the bacon is slightly crispy.

The end result is awesome. You get a bit of the smokiness, nothing too overpowering, with a slightly crispy exterior of the bacon, and really tender jalapeño pepper. The creaminess of the cheeses brings it together as well. I know the next time I get my smoker going, I will be making these again, and in my opinion, they were better than the classic jalapeño popper!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
