Spicy Jalapeno Poppers


  • 7jalapeno 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
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a wire rack.


  • Step 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.

  • Step 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.

  • Step 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.

  • Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is crispy and jalapenos are tender, about 35 minutes.
