Air Fryer Bacon and Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

How to make Air Fryer Bacon and Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers


12 Jalapenos

8 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature or slightly soft

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon onion powder

12 slices of bacon, thinly cut

salt and pepper to taste


Cut the jalapenos in half, remove the stems, and remove the seeds and membranes. The more membrane you leave, the spicier the jalapenos will be.

Add cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix to combine.

Using a small spoon, scoop the cream mixture into each jalapeno filling it just to the top.

Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees for about 3 minutes.

Cut each slice of bacon in half.

Wrap each jalapeno half in one piece of bacon.

Place the bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapenos in the air fryer in an even layer making sure they do not touch.

Air fry at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes, until bacon is thoroughly cooked.

Enjoy immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 days, reheating before eating.
