Wahoo Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

Hi all! Last spring my husband and my daughter, Misha, planted a little garden in our backyard. Tomatoes, green peppers, some herbs, and at Misha's request ... jalapeño peppers. The jalapeños came in a 4-pack (!), and now that harvest time is here, we have a bumper crop! But what to do with so many jalapeños? This is not an item we really cook with much at our house, so I turned to our website.

I clicked on the recipe index and typed "jalapeno peppers" into the search field and ta da! More than 20 recipes popped up. So today we are going to try Dawn Onuffer's (FL) recipe for Wahoo! Bacon Jalapeño Poppers. They feature Fiesta Party Seasoning, Wahoo! Chili® Seasoning and bacon ... three of my favorite things. To lighten this up, I'm going to use light cream cheese and turkey bacon.


Wahoo! Bacon Jalapeno Poppers



Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove the stem, membranes and seeds. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, Fiesta Party Dip Mix and shredded cheddar cheese. In separate small bowl, combine brown sugar and Wahoo! Chili®. Fill each jalapeno half with the cream cheese mixture and wrap a bacon slice around each jalapeno half; roll jalapenos in the brown sugar mixture. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 350º oven for 25-30 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Makes 12 jalapeno poppers.

Tips and Hints

  • Turkey bacon is ... well ... turkey bacon. Next time I will use regular bacon - although my testers LOVED these and did not complain about the turkey bacon at all. My own hang-up, I guess!
  • I used light (Neufchatel) cream cheese, and that worked great.
  • I had a lot of the brown sugar/Wahoo mixture leftover - next time I will cut that in half.
