  • Method: Baked
  • Cuisine: Tex Mex


  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper jack or other spicy cheese
  • 6-8 jalapenos
  • 6-8 slices of bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, and cheese in a mixing bowl. I used my stand mixer because I'm lazy, but you could mix it by hand.
  3. Cut the stem off of your jalepenos then slice them in half lengthwise. Remove the ribs and seeds. I use a spoon to scrape out the insides. Just make sure you wash your hands a lot. Arrange jalapeno halves on a foil lined baking sheet.
  4. Cut your bacon slices in half.
  5. Fill the cavity in each jalapeno half with the cream cheese mixture, then wrap a half piece of bacon around it and secure with a toothpick.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until your bacon has reached desired crispness.
  7. If you want them to be less greasy when you serve them, place them on a wire rack over foil to cool.
  8. These are good hot or at room temperature.



  • You'll likely have some of the cream cheese mixture leftover, so if you want to a few extra, just increase your jalapenos and bacon accordingly.
