Ingredients

12 Jalapenos

1 block cream cheese

1 cup shredded cheese, Chihuahua, mozzarella, colby jack, pepper jack, etc

1 package bacon

corn tortilla

Pico de Gallo (recipe below)

Directions

Step 1

To the Jalapenos, cut slits into one side, length wise then across on top, essentially cutting a T shape into the jalapenos. Gently open up the jalapeno and remove the insides.

12 Jalapenos

Step 2

Making sure the cream cheese is room temperature, mix it with the 1 cup shredded cheese.

1 block cream cheese

1 cup shredded cheese, Chihuahua, mozzarella, colby jack, pepper jack, etc

Step 3

Stuff the jalapenos with the cream cheese mixture.

Step 4

Wrap the jalapenos with the bacon, thin cut works better, I like to overlap the ends of the bacon under other parts of bacon so that they dont unwrap when cooking. You can also use toothpicks to hold the bacon together.

1 package bacon

Step 5

Place the poppers in the air fryer and cook for 15 minutes at 400 degrees making sure to flip/turn halfway through.

Step 6

Serve as is or in tacos.

Step 7

If serving with Pico de Gallo, to a bowl add 2 diced roma tomatoes, 1 diced jalapeno, 1/2 diced white onion, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, the juice of 1 or 2 limes, salt and pepper to taste.
