Jalapeno poppers are a popular snack or appetizer. They're becoming increasingly common on menus, so what better time to learn how to make them yourself? Your guests will be delighted when you bring these out at your next event.

Wrapping jalapeno poppers in bacon is the best way to take them to a new level. Everyone loves bacon, even if it isn't the best food in the world for you. Of course, we have to include cream cheese as well, because this recipe wouldn't be complete without it.

If you want to make this recipe a little bit healthier, there's nothing wrong with using turkey bacon instead of pork bacon. Turkey bacon is easy to find, and is lower in fat and calories compared to pork bacon. If you want to still be able to enjoy this recipe while on a diet, you can.

Another switch to make is to use light cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese. The taste will be very similar, but light cream cheese will have fewer calories and less fat. By making these two changes, these jalapeno poppers instantly become a lot healthier!
