Drool-Worthy Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Thank you for sharing!

My family loves grilled food (like most people), and Sunday suppers are almost always a product of the backyard grill. So, I work at trying to  come up with something different to throw on the grill. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to try my hand at Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers. I made a dozen of these little jewels, thinking that nobody would want more than a couple of them. Boy, was I wrong! My Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers were a REAL hit! We gobbled up that entire dozen in no time flat! Since they turned out so well, I decided to share my recipe with you–it is simple as can be.

These bacon-wrapped jalapeno snack ideas are so easy and yummy!

Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Ingredients

  • 6 large, fresh Jalapeno Peppers
  • 1 pound fresh boneless, skinless Chicken
  • 12 strips Bacon
  • 1 medium yellow or white Onion
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 12 wooden Toothpicks

Putting Together Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

  1. Wearing rubber gloves, cut off stem-ends and slice the Jalapeno Peppers lengthwise. Remove all seeds, rinse and place on a paper towel to drain. (Removing the seeds will prevent the jalapeno peppers from being hot. If you want some heat in your Poppers, leave a few seeds in.)
  2. Peel and wash Onion, then cut strips about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide and set aside.
  3. Separate the Bacon strips and set aside.
  4. Wash the chicken and cut into strips about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Season with Worcestershire Sauce.
  5. Arrange Jalapeno Pepper halves on a cookie sheet. Add 1 strip of chicken to each Jalapeno Pepper half.
  6. Season with Garlic Powder, Salt, and Pepper. If you use regular bacon, no salt is needed. However, if you use low-sodium bacon, you’ll need a little salt.
  7. Place a strip of Onion on top of each Jalapeno Pepper/Chicken combination.
  8. Wrap each Jalapeno Pepper/Chicken/Onion combination with a strip of Bacon and secure with a wooden Toothpick.
  9. Place on a pre-heated grill on low heat for approximately 8-10 minutes (check frequently). When the Jalapeno Poppers begin to drip oil from the bacon, turn the heat up to brown. During the browning process, watch the Poppers constantly and turn them every 60-90 seconds. When browned, remove from grill and enjoy!

You can also add cheese, if that floats your boat, but for our family, it’s dairy-free all the time. If it were me and we were going for something fun, I might stuff with feta cheese and serve with ranch to dip them in. But again, no dairy in our house means none at all, even if it sounds super yummy.

I’ve also seen where people battered these and fried them, but grilling seemed just a tad healthier, and besides, that’s a post for another day! LOL!
