Jalapeno poppers that aren’t too sweet with a little spicy kick of chorizo.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 7 jalapeno peppers, stemmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 5 ounces soy chorizo (such as Trader Joe's®)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (16 ounce) package sliced bacon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a wire rack.
  2. 2 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and chorizo; cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. 3 Mix chorizo, cream cheese, and Cheddar together using a blender or hand mixer until thoroughly combined. Push mixture into one corner of a resealable zip-top bag and cut the tip to create a pastry bag.
  4. 4 Pipe mixture into the jalapenos. Wrap each jalapeno with a slice of bacon, overlapping it over the filling. Place jalapenos on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. 5 Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is crispy and jalapenos are tender, about 35 minutes.

  1. I made these exactly by this recipe and they turned out great!
  2. This is an excellent recipe. Nice twist with the chorizo added. I have made twice now. First time with jalapeño peppers…second time with the small sweet peppers that are red and yellow and look like a jalapeño. Both ways are very good! This will be a staple for me!
  3. I added hot sauce to the mixture as well as rolled them in corn meal. They came out great with the added crunch
  4. These were delicious! Thanks for the recipe, it’s a keeper!
