Air Fryer BBQ Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Air Fryer BBQ Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers are a mouthful to say – and a mouthful of flavor. They’re stuffed with a garlic cream cheese filling, wrapped in bacon, and bathed in a brown sugar BBQ sauce. What’s not to love?

  • 8 jalapenos
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup fiesta blend cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 16 slices Wright Brand bacon
  • 1 cup Head Country BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees F. 
  2. Slice jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds and veins.
  3. In small bowl, combine cream cheese, fiesta blend cheese, and garlic powder. Stir until smooth.
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture into body of each jalapeno half, Starting with stem end, wrap bacon around stuffed jalapeno, overlapping slightly. Secure with 1-2 toothpicks. 
  5. In another small bowl, combine BBQ sauce and brown sugar. Dip bacon-wrapped jalapenos into BBQ mixture OR use a pastry brush to apply BBQ mixture.
  6. Place jalapenos in single layer in Air Fryer. Cook 16-20 minutes until bacon is crispy. 

Key to Success #1 – Slice Jalapenos and Remove Seeds
For these Jalapeno Poppers, try to get jalapenos that are about 3-inches in size. Finding jalapenos that are similar in size is important because the jalapenos will be all cook in about the same amount of time.

After you wash your jalapenos, you’ll want to cut off the stem end then slice them lengthwise. You can use a small paring knife to remove the veins and all the seeds.

If you want some of the heat from the jalapenos, you can leave a few of the seeds inside. The more seeds, the more heat. Choose your own adventure!

For my family, I removed all the seeds.
Key to Success #2 – Mix Up the Cream Cheese Filling
The cream cheese filling for these Air Fryer Jalapeno Poppers is made with cream cheese, fiesta blend cheese, and some garlic powder.

If you pop the cream cheese into the microwave for about 30 seconds, it’ll soften up enough so that it’ll be much easier to mix the other cheese into it.

The garlic powder is optional, but we really like it and think it adds a nice punch of flavor.

Key to Success #3 – Wrap It In Bacon
I recommend Wright Brand bacon in this recipe, which is a thick-cut bacon. Using an Air Fryer, the bacon will get crispy even with it being thick-cut.

If you wrap your Jalapeno Poppers well enough, you can turn them over halfway through cooking without losing your cream cheese filling. I used a pair of silicone-tipped tongs and it worked out great.

Be sure to use toothpicks to secure your bacon to the Jalapeno Poppers. I used two toothpicks through the sides to secure each end of the bacon.

Key to Success #4 – Cover It in Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce
You don’t have to add the brown sugar to the BBQ sauce, but it sure adds a nice touch of sweetness to these Air Fryer BBQ Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers.

I chose to dip my Bacon-wrapped Jalapenos into the BBQ sauce, but you can use a pastry brush to gently brush it on if you like to be neat.

The BBQ’d Jalapenos go directly into the basket of the Air Fryer at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes. If you can manage to flip your Jalapeno Poppers halfway through cooking, this is preferred. But if not, the hot air will still circulate around them well enough to crisp up the bacon.

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try! Please like and share with your friends.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
