  • 10 jalapeños, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce or cranberry compote
  • 10 slices of bacon, cut in half width-wise
  • 20 wooden toothpicks or small skewers


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place a wire rack over a baking sheet and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and cranberry sauce. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into a jalapeño half and wrap with a strip of bacon. Secure the bacon ends with a toothpick or skewer and place on the wire rack. Repeat with the remaining jalapeños until they are all filled and wrapped.
