Impress guests with these dangerously addicting smoked jalapeno poppers! These bacon-wrapped goodies are stuffed with a spicy cheese mixture.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 1 hr
Total: 1 hr 10 mins


  • 8 jalapeno peppers
  • 8 oz cream cheese, or use 4 oz cream cheese and 4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika, or more to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • red pepper flakes, optional
  • 16 bacon, slices, or use 8 slices cut in half for smaller poppers


  1. Heat the smoker to 300 degrees F.

  2. Slice the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides with a spoon.

  3. Add the cream cheese, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and red chili flakes to a bowl and mix well.

  4. Fill each jalapeno pepper half with the spicy cheese mixture.

  5. Wrap each stuffed jalapeno boat with a slice of bacon. Pierce with toothpicks to hold the bacon in place.

  7. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and serve. Enjoy!
