Mellow Jalapeno Poppers

Here’s a different twist on your ordinary jalapeno poppers. I, personally, am not a big “spicy” fan, so this recipe was nice for me. The orange tamed the spice a bit without changing the overall flavor too much, and the bacon-bits… well, bacon makes everything better.

Jalapeno Poppers


  • 04 – 06 jalapeno peppers
  • 02 C cream cheese
  • 1/2 C canned mandarin oranges, diced
  • 02 Tbsp. bacon bits

Jalapeno Poppers Mixture

Jalapeno Poppers Prep


Cut the tops off of the peppers, remove seeds and membranes and slice each pepper in half, lengthwise.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl.
Stuff each pepper slice with cream cheese mixture.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes.


I baked my poppers in a cupcake tin to help keep them upright while baking.
