Serves: 20 poppers
  • 10 large jalapeño peppers
  • 8 ounces light cream cheese, softened
  • ½ tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce
  • 5 strips of bacon, sliced in half
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Slice the jalapeño peppers in half. Using a paring knife, carefully scrape out the seeds and veins from each half.
  3. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and cranberry sauce. Mix thoroughly with a large spoon or spatula.
  4. Fill each jalapeño half with about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese filling. Wrap a ½ strip of bacon around each filled jalapeño half. Secure the bacon with a toothpick.
  5. Place the jalapeño poppers on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the bacon is cooked through and slightly crisp. Place the poppers on a plate lined with paper towel to drain the excess grease before serving.
