Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos


  • 12 jalapeno peppers
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 bacon slices
  • Cut jalapeños in half lengthwise and use a sharp paring knife or spoon to scoop out the seeds and ribs.
  • In a bowl, combine softened cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, garlic, green onions, salt and pepper; blend well.
  • Using a small spoon or kitchen knife, fill each jalapeño half with cheese mixture. Wrap each jalapeño with slice of bacon, then place jalapeño stuffed side up on cooking tray. Continue until all jalapeños are filled, wrapped and placed on two cooking trays.
  • Place the drip pan in the bottom of the cooking chamber. Using the display panel, select Air Fry, adjust Temperature to 400°F (200°C) and set time to 8 minutes. Press Start. Preheat Vortex until display indicates Add Food.
  • Slide one cooking tray into the bottom position and the other tray into the top position. When indicator signals Turn Food, switch cooking trays so the tray that was in the top position is now in the bottom position and the other tray moves to the top position. Continue to cook until the filling is golden and bubbling and bacon is crispy and browned.
  • Using a nonstick spatula, transfer poppers to a serving platter. Cool a few  minutes before serving.
