  • 12 fresh jalapenos
  • 4 oz fresh chorizo removed from casing
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 12 slices bacon


  • Slice the jalapenos in half and remove the seeds and as much of the inner walls as possible. Set aside.
  • Brown the chorizo in a skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through. Drain on a paper towel. Let cool.
  • In a bowl combine the cream cheese with the chorizo and cheddar. 
  • With a tablespoon, scoop cream cheese filling into each jalapeno half (use your thumb to press the cream cheese mixture in place if needed).
  • On a clean work surface, arrange 12 slices of bacon and slice in half at the middle. 
  • Starting at the bottom of each filling stuffed pepper, wrap each in bacon and arrange on an oven-safe wire rack, filling side up to prevent spilling. 
  • You can store the peppers in the fridge for up to 4 hours until ready to cook.
  • If cooking in an oven: When ready to cook, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place the wire rack on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until bacon is cooked and crispy.
  • If smoking: Preheat your smoker to 335 degrees and place the jalapeno poppers over the grill grates, lining with foil if your heat isn't offset.
  • Smoke for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until the bacon is crisp. 
  • Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.
