Maple Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

Maple Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

These Maple Bacon Jalapeno Poppers are so yummy and it takes only a few minutes to prepare.  The combination of just the right amount of salty, sweet, and heat will leave you wanting more!


  • 6 Jalapeno peppers
  • 6 pieces of bacon
  • 1 8oz pkg of cream cheese
  • Maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar & or Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Cut jalapeno peppers in half. Remove all seeds (unless you like them hot. If so, leave a few)
  2. Steam the peppers with a little water in a bowl and place in the microwave for 4 minutes. You want them soft. By doing this, it cuts down on the heat, leaving however the amazing flavor. Let cool.
  3. Place peppers on a cookie sheet
  4. Place a slice of cream cheese in each pepper half.
  5. Add a slice of cooked bacon (easier to eat if you crumble the bacon a little or use real bacon bits)
  6. Drizzle maple syrup (or honey) on the bacon.
  7. Top with Monterey Jack &/or Cheddar cheese 

Broil in the oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
