6 slices Wright® Brand Bacon

12 fresh jalapeño peppers, stem portion removed, deseeded completely

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese

½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

¼ cup washed and chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon ground cumin seed

Salt to taste

black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Remove jalapeño stems, cutting away the very top of the pepper. This allows for easy removal of the seeds. 
  3. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, cilantro, cumin, salt, and pepper. Gently fill hollowed jalapeños with cream cheese mixture. 
  4. Place a small piece of bacon over the exposed portion of the jalapeño. Tightly wrap each filled jalapeño securing the filling inside. Use a toothpick for added stability. 
  5. Cook poppers on preheated outdoor grill and finish in a 350°F oven if needed.
