These are so addicting!

These are my go-to snacks, even as a meal, and the appetizer to bring to the party. All you need is jalapeño and cream cheese for them to taste great, but adding cheese, garlic, and bacon adds that extra gourmet taste!

Some people call them “jalapeño poppers” if you coat and fry them. Some refer to them as “rat tails” if you leave the stems on. Both are very yummy!




  • 12 jalapeños (24 halves)
  • 1 package (8 oz/226 grams) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan or sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
  • 1 package (16 oz/1 lb) bacon, sliced (may cut again lengthwise, optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C).
  2. Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and garlic.
  3. Spread cheese mixture onto each jalapeño and wrap with bacon.
  4. Bake for 15-25 minutes until cheese is melted and bacon is to desired crispiness.
