Ingredients

How to Make Bacon Ranch Poppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice the jalapenos in half the long way. De-seed each side. (Keep some seeds in them if you want them to be spicier.)
  2. Mix the cream cheese with about 1/2 of the ranch powder. Taste test the cream cheese, and see if you want to add anymore powder than half.
  3. IF USING A GRILL:
  4. Stuff each side of the hollowed out jalapeno with the ranch cream cheese.
  5. Once they are full, get a slice of bacon to wrap around the jalapeno and send a toothpick through to help hold the bacon. (I usually slice the bacon in half and it covers the jalapeno top to bottom. But cut as you go since the jalapenos are different sizes.)
  6. Place the jalapenos cream cheese side down on the grill to start. This way the top of the bacon can get a little browned, and then flip to cook longer. *Just keep an eye on them while they're cheese down.*
  7. Once the bacon has been cooked, they're good to go!!
  8. IF USING AN OVEN:
  9. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and then stuff each side of the hollowed out jalapeno with the ranch cream cheese.
  10. Once they are full, get a slice of bacon to wrap around the jalapeno and send a toothpick through to help hold the bacon. (I usually slice the bacon in half and it covers the jalapeno top to bottom. But cut as you go since the jalapenos are different sizes.)
  11. Place the wrapped jalapenos on a baking rack and place in the oven. *Make sure to place a pan underneath to catch the dripping bacon.*
  12. Take out of the oven when the bacon is fully cooked. It usually takes about 25 minutes, give or take a few.
