18-20 minutes
Serves 6-8
  • 6 small to medium jalapeno chiles
  • 12 oz Harmons jalapeno cheddar cheeseball, softened
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 cup panko dried breadcrumbs
  • Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 375° and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Use gloves prior to handling jalapenos. Slice jalapenos lengthwise and scoop out seeds and white membranes, as desired.

In a small bowl, combine jalapeno cheddar cheeseball and bacon and stir to combine. If needed, heat for a couple of seconds in microwave to soften to a piping consistency. Transfer mixture to a resealable plastic bag, remove air and seal. Fill jalapeno halves with cheese mixture.

In a small bowl, combine butter, panko and salt. Divide panko mixture evenly over tops of cheese-filled jalapenos.

Bake until topping is browned and the cheese is melted, 18-20 minutes.
