Yields 24 stuffed pepper halves. Prep time 10 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes

For this recipe you will need:

  • 12 medium jalapeno peppers

  • 8 oz cream cheese brick softened to room temperature
  • 2/3 mexi style  blend cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tablespoon  ranch dip seasoning dry mix

Wash peppers, then cut in half lengthwise and take out seeds and ribs.  You might want to wear gloves while you do this, or put oil on your hands, then wash them with soap after your done. I found using a small spoon or even a grapefruit spoon works really well for getting the ribs and seeds out.  You want to make sure you get all the seeds out because that is where the heat is, if you like spicy then keep the ribs in.   Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl Recipes.

In a mixing bowl add the cream cheese, shredded cheese and ranch seasoning.  Mix well and spoon into jalapeno halves, place  cooked bacon on top.  Put on baking sheet, and cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Quick tip *** I found that if you put them on a metal baking rack the peppers will stay upright during the cooking process and not tip over.  When they tip over the cheese tends to slide out, so this helps prevent that.  Make sure you put the rack on top of a cookie sheet for easier transport and clean up.

No, they aren't spicy at all when you scrape out the seeds & rib. They are very mellow. I love the brightness of a jalapeno. Mmmm! :)
