what you need
  • 24 jalapeno peppers
  • 2 boxes (8 oz. each) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
  • 2 packages Oscar Mayer bacon
  • Kraft Ranch Dressing
make it
Cut the stem-end of each jalapeno pepper off and de-seed each pepper. After de-seeding the pepper, rinse out remaining seeds.

Next, stuff each pepper with enough cream cheese to fill the hollow pepper. After filling the pepper, wrap it with a slice of bacon. While wrapping the pepper, it may be wise to cover the exposed end of the pepper with the bacon to keep the cream cheese from coming out. After the bacon has been wrapped around each pepper, put a toothpick through the bacon and pepper to keep them together.

Place the peppers on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees F for about 10 minutes and then rotate to make sure bacon is cooked thoroughly. Serve with Kraft Ranch Dressing.
To speed up the baking process, the poppers may be broiled for about 5-10 minutes and then rotated for another 5-10 minutes. If using the broil method, then it is very important to keep a close eye on the poppers as they will burn easily with the oven on broil.

Rated  by a cook on 12/11/2010 Big hit. I ended up only using only a a little more than 1 box of cream cheese and 1 package of bacon for 2 dozen peppers. I cut the bacon strips in half (maybe saving a few grams of fat!). Will definitely make again.
