Cook Time: 15 mins


– 1 lb jalapeno peppers, about 10 jalapenos sliced in half and seeds removed – 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese grated – 8 oz cream cheese package room temperature – 6 slices bacon sliced – 3 tablespoons your favorite chips crushed – greens like cilantro, chives or parsley for garnish, 100% optional

Add bacon to a skillet and cook on medium/high heat until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. This will soak up any excess grease that would make the filling too runny.

Step 1

Combine cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and bacon bits in a bowl and mix to combine, making sure it’s all incorporated.

Step 2

Finish it off with a sprinkling of crushed chips and any optional herbs you desire before serving.
