Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil or cooking parchment paper. Soak toothpicks in small bowl of warm water to prevent burning.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix cream cheese and chives. Spoon mixture evenly into chile halves.
  • 3
    Cut each bacon slice crosswise into thirds. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each stuffed chile half; secure with soaked toothpick. Place on cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake 25 minutes or until bacon is crispy and chiles are tender. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • These poppers will be mildly spicy. For more heat, don’t remove all of the jalapeño seeds and leave the membranes intact.
  • Add a little more flavor to the filling with some chopped fresh parsley or cilantro.
  • When handling jalapeños and other hot chiles, wear plastic gloves. The oils that get on your hands will stay there, so if you were to rub your eyes after touching the chiles, you could really hurt yourself! You can buy powder-free gloves at a pharmacy.
