  • 6 jalapenos, stem, seeds and ribs cleaned out
  • 3 mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 6 pieces bacon, thin cut


  1. Take your jalapenos and cut off the tops. Use a knife to clean out the seeds and ribs. These contain the heat of the pepper.

  2. Cut the cheese sticks in half and stuff into the jalaepnos. You might have excess cheese sticking out. If so cut it so it's flush with the top of the pepper. You can try to cut it and stuff into the side if you wish.

  3. Take a piece of bacon and at the end, cover the whole side of the pepper. Then carefully wrap around the pepper. You can try to mold the bacon around the pepper by squeezing with your hands. The bacon should stick together.

  4. Place seam side down in the Air Fryer basket and cook on 400°F for 10 minutes. If the bacon is not as crispy as you like, try a few more minutes.

  5. Serve immediately.
