Nonstick spray

6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 

1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

2 green onions, minced 

12 large jalapenos, halved lengthwise and seeded 

12 slices center-cut bacon, halved lengthwise 


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, Cheddar, cilantro, salt, pepper and green onions.
  3. Fill each jalapeno half with a heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture. Wrap the bacon tightly around the jalapenos, overlapping slightly.
  4. Place the wrapped jalapenos, cheese-side up and spaced 1-inch apart, on the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Transfer to the oven and bake until the bacon is crisp, about 25 minutes.
