Recipe: Easy Jalapeno Poppers


  • 8 medium sized jalapeños
  • 4 ounces (1/4 pound) Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 8 short wooden skewers or wooden toothpicks
  • 1 packet Tostitos Dip Creations Freshly Made Guacamole prepared according to instructions
  • 3 avocados


  1. Create a slit in one side of the jalapeños using a small sharp knife. Do not cut all the way through the ends. Remove the seeds and membrane for a milder popper.
  2. Stuff a pepper with 1/8 of the cheese. Wrap with a slice of bacon and secure the bacon with a skewer. Repeat with the 7 other peppers.
  3. Preheat oven to 425°F. Sear poppers on all sides over high heat in a nonstick pan until bacon is golden brown. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes.
  4. Serve hot with the guacamole on the side.
