  • 8-12 jalapeño peppers
  • 8-12 slices bacon (not thick-cut)
  • 1 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 12 Sunsweet® Pitted Dates, chopped
  • toothpicks, soaked in warm water


Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Cut jalapeño peppers in half, lengthwise. Remove seeds and membranes. Cut bacon slices in half. Mix cream cheese and dates together until combined. Fill the jalapeño halves with cream cheese and date mixture. Wrap each stuffed jalapeño half with a half slice of bacon. If needed, add a toothpick to help secure the bacon wrapping. Add to a pan lined with parchment or foil. Bake until bacon is crispy, around 15-20 minutes.
