Get ready for game day or any party with these Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Bites. Combining the creamy richness of cream cheese, the spicy kick of jalapenos, and the smoky flavor of bacon, these bites are an irresistible appetizer that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser.


  • Thick-cut bacon, sliced in half
  • Ritz crackers
  • Cream cheese
  • Fresh jalapenos, sliced
  • Grillheads Queen Bee Honey-Based Dry Rub


  1. Prep the Bacon: Start by slicing your thick-cut bacon in half. These will be used to wrap around the crackers for a smoky, savory flavor.

  2. Cream Cheese Layer: Spread a generous dollop of cream cheese over each Ritz cracker. The cream cheese acts as a creamy base for the jalapeno.

  3. Add the Heat: Place a slice of fresh jalapeno on top of the cream cheese. If you like it spicy, keep the seeds in.

  4. Wrap with Bacon: Take two half slices of bacon and wrap one around the cracker and one over the top, securing the jalapeno and cream cheese in place.

  5. Season: Sprinkle Grillheads Queen Bee rub over the bacon. This honey-based rub will add a sweet contrast to the spicy jalapeno.

  6. Grill or Bake: Set your grill or oven to 350°F. Cook the popper bites for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until the bacon is perfectly cooked.

  7. Serve with Ranch: These bites are best served with a side of ranch dressing for dipping.
