Amazing Stuffed Jalapenos Recipe

Posted by on April 19, 2016 in Appetizers, Recipes | 14 comments

While visiting in Arizona, we had an extended family get-together which grew to over 70 people! One of the relatives brought these Amazing Stuffed Jalapenos! Now, I’m from the midwest and don’t like really hot spicy food, but these were absolutely delicious! My second-cousin, Beth, graciously shared this recipe.

Great Jalapeno Poppers!

The recipe makes a generous amount of appetizers, but people absolutely love them and they really go fast. So, plan accordingly. They’re stuffed with a combination of sausage, cream cheese and parmesan cheese. Then, they’re wrapped with bacon. Ooh, my mouth just waters thinking of them. Please don’t shy away from this recipe because you might think of it as way too spicy. You can control the amount of heat. If you want it spicier, just leave some pulp, seeds, or use a spicy sausage for the stuffing. Make one batch spicy and another fairly mild, just to please everyone.

  • 1 lb. breakfast sausage (I used Jimmy Dean)
  • 1 pkg. of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 pkg. bacon


  1. Brown and crumble sausage.
  2. Melt cream cheese in with sausage and add parmesan cheese.
  4. Halve jalapenos, lengthwise
  5. Remove stem and remove seeds and pulp
  6. Fill with sausage mixture
  7. Wrap with 1/2 slice of uncooked bacon
  8. Bake at 425 degrees for 25-30 min.
  9. If you want bacon really crisp, broil on high for 2-3 minutes.
  10. Serve immediately.

I wanted my family to taste these and give me their opinion. I didn’t want to make the entire recipe for just a couple of people, so  I made half and refrigerated the sausage-cream cheese combination and made the rest two days later. It was nice to have them fresh-made two times in a week.  By the way, the family opinion was that they were AMAZING!

These are ready for the oven…..   I baked these Stuffed Jalapenos on foil for an easy clean up.

  3. Midwesterner here, not a huge fan of peppers but you are inspiring me to maybe try them. Thanks for sharing your post on

    • I’m a midwesterner, too! If I thought they were great, believe me, you will, too! I was very apprehensive to try them and now am hooked! Just be sure to get all the seeds and pulp out.

  4. Sounds like something we’d enjoy! I like easy, and I like spicy! Thanks for sharing with us at Creatively Crafty 🙂 #ccbg

    • As I said, “Amazing”!

  5. Love stuffed jalapenos! I can’t handle spicy foods either, but the cream cheese really cools down the peppers. I’ve never had them with bacon before. Definitely adding it next time. My husband will tell you, bacon makes everything better 😀

    • I do agree with your husband on bacon!

  6. As a true-blue Texan, I love all things spicy and stuffed jalapenos are among my faves. This recipe sounds delish! Thanks for sharing. (Stopping by from the Creative Muster hop)
