How to Make Ninja Foodi Jalapeno Poppers

Cook bacon until desired crispiness and allow to cool. Cut jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove stem/seeds.

Tip: wear gloves! It helps to prevent the heat from the jalapeños getting to places they don’t belong.

Have you ever rubbed your eyes after cutting up hot peppers? And you thought you washed your wands well enough. Um, yeah not pleasant!

Layer the jalapeños like this: cream cheese, bacon pieces, shredded cheddar cheese.

Using the air crisp function of the Ninja Foodi, they will cook for about 8 minutes.

  • 2 slices of thick cut bacon

  2. Cut the jalapenos in half lengthwise, remove the stems and seeds.
  3. Shred the cheddar cheese and cut up the cream cheese.
  4. Layer the ingredients in this order: cream cheese spread evenly over the jalapenos, place the bacon over the top of the cream cheese (see note). And finally distribute the shredded cheese evenly over the bacon.
  5. Add the poppers to the air crisp basket of the Ninja Foodi. Set the function to air crisp, 390 degrees. And cook for about 8 minutes.

You may need to press the bacon into the cream cheese a bit to prevent it from falling off.
