  • 1 lb ground turkey salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 jalapenos fresh
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 24 pieces turkey bacon Approximate 1 lb
  • Pepper jelly for dipping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brown ground turkey in a medium skillet over medium heat, season with salt and pepper to taste, drain any fat off, and set aside.
  • I have Anolon skilletand I absolutely love them! They are made of heavy duty materials, they heat evenly, and they even have a lifetime warranty
  • Bring a big pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat
  • Dump jalapenos into the water and boil for 2-3 minutes
  • Remove from water, cut tops off, cut in half length-wise (see images) deseed, and set aside
  • In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese and browned ground turkey, and stir to combine.
  • Spoon cream cheese filling into the jalapenos.
  • Wrap each one in turkey bacon, and place on a baking sheet.
  • One other trick that I use is I line my baking sheets with a silicone baking mats They make clean up quick and easy.
  • Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
  • Turn oven on to broil on high, and broil until bacon is crisp (5 mins)
  • Dip in pepper jelly and enjoy!
