Author Cheryl Najafi


  • 12 large jalapeños
  • 1/2 lb hot pork sausage
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese blend shredded
  • 24 slices bacon thin cut
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Wash the peppers. Slice them length wise in half and remove the seeds and white membranes. Set aside.
  • Remove casings from sausage and mix with cheese, until thoroughly combined. Fill peppers with approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of sausage mixture. The bigger the pepper, the more filling you will use. Wrap one slice of bacon around each stuffed pepper. Secure the pepper with a toothpick pierced through the middle if necessary for the jalapeño to hold its form. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place peppers on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. Drain poppers on paper towels then transfer to serving platter and enjoy!
