Kinder’s Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers


8 large jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded, leaving stems on

1 tsp Kinder’s Tequila Lime Rub

4 oz cream cheese, softened

16 bacon strips

1/2 Cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 Cup panko bread crumbs


Step 1

Preheat the smoker to 225°F.

Step 2

Place your cream cheese in a mixing bowl and microwave for 30 seconds to soften.

Step 3

Add cheddar cheese, panko bread crumbs and Kinder’s Tequila Lime Seasoning to the cream cheese. Mix thoroughly to make your filling mixture.

Step 4

Fill jalapeno halves with approximately 1-1.5 Tbsp of filling mixture. Do not over stuff.

Step 5

Wrap a bacon strip around each jalapeno, starting at the stem end and moving to the tip of the jalapeno as you wrap the bacon around. NOTE: Secure each end of the bacon with a toothpick, to ensure the bacon stays in place during the cook. These can easily be removed before serving.

Step 6

Place jalapenos on the smoker and cook for 1.5-2 hours. Once the bacon browns evenly, they are ready to be pulled from the grill.

Step 7

Serve warm with your preferred dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Step 8

NOTE: No smoker? No time? No problem! You can prepare your bacon-wrapped jalapenos as instructed above, and then easily roast them in the oven at 400°F for 25-30 minutes, or until the bacon is evenly browned.
