    They were delicious! I added ranch seasoning to the cream cheese and it really changed the game. Will make again for my next dinner party.

    Perfect! I did dip the top of the pepper in Panko breadcrumbs before wrapping in a 1/2 slice bacon!

    Excellent! I am addicted to poppers and think the cheddar cheese adds great flavor. I liked the suggestion to use a pastry or ziploc bag. If you want your bacon to wrap around, buy the smaller sized peppers, or cut the bacon in half instead of into thirds.

    loved it. Next time I will use toothpicks to hold bacon in place or cut bacon in half not thirds

    Tasty but I cut my bacon in half, thirds is way to small to wrap around the jalapeño.

    I normally fill the jalapeños with just cream cheese and wanted to make the same style, but jazz up the filling.. my boyfriend noticed the difference and said they were my best ones yet. I absolutely recommend this quick and easy popper!
    Tasty but too greasy

    Tasted mix before baking was worried because it was very garlicky. Was perfect.

    Tasty! I have made these several times. the only thing I added was bread crumbs before wrapping the bacon. I pressed the filled pepper face down in a bowl of panko crumbs then wrapped bacon.

    I liked the ease of this recipe and that it could be baked in the oven.
