  • Olive oil spray
  • 4 oz smoked cheddar
  • 12 medium jalapeño peppers
  • 12 bacon slices, halved crosswise


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and fit it with a wire rack. Lightly spray the rack with olive oil.
  • Halve the jalapenos lengthwise and seed them (here's a good tip on how to do it if you don't have gloves).
  • Cut the cheddar into 24 strips and use them to stuff the seeded jalapeño halves.
  • Wrap the bacon pieces around the jalapeños. Arrange, cheese side up, on the wire rack. Lightly spray the jalapenos with olive oil.
  • Bake until cheese is melted and lightly browned and bacon is crisp, about 25 minutes. Serve the baked jalapeno poppers immediately and watch them disappear in minutes!
