Do you serve appetizers at your holiday party? Because that’s exactly why I made these! So you could have delicious little snacks while you wait for the main meal! OR for New Year’s Eve when everyone be snackin’! These are my spin on those cream cheese stuffed jalapeños that are so bomb but so not great for a person who can’t do dairy. I ate these for leftovers for days and they just get better with time as all the flavors meld. Stop what you’re doing right now and go make these!

So lately, I’ve been absolutely hating our gyms workouts. Which blows. So I’ve been adding in more of my own workouts and trying movements I’ve never done before. And it’s been really damn fun! So I’ve been sharing some of those workouts with you guys on instagram and since lots of people responded to them, I’m thinking about putting together a little New Year’s packet of workouts you can do while you’re traveling or just at your own gym and send it out to my email subscribers in 2017! If you aren’t a email subscriber yet and want some free workouts, be sure to sign up on the home page at the top of the screen where it says “subscribe my mail” or at the bottom where it says “hungry for more?” then I can send you all these fun workouts soon! I can’t wait! Let’s get excited about our workouts together in 2017!

Speaking of excited, what I’m NOT excited to do is drive to Omaha for Christmas. Not into it. But my mother-in-law just had knee surgery and can’t bend her knee much yet so we are going to visit her for the holidays instead of her coming here. And there was no way I was leaving Jackson dog with a friend for Christmas. Hells to the nah. So we are packing up the car and heading out. Sadly, my family isn’t into murder podcasts and think I’m a psychopath for being into them, so I think I may have to keep my headphones in the whole time and listen on my own. No family murder listening. Alas, I need to find some new podcasts to listen to! Here’s what I’ve finished so far or have listened to most so far:

  • Up and Vanished
  • My Favorite Murder
  • Sword & Scale
  • Serial
  • In the Dark
  • Undisclosed
  • Accused
  • Girls Gone Wod

What are you listening to and loving right now?! I need stuff to keep me entertained while driving 7-8 hours and music just doesn’t cut it for me. I need stories. And these murder podcasts are beginning to make me trust absolutely no one and look over my shoulder every 14 seconds, so if you have any other positive or fun podcasts (or murder, I’ll always take murder) then send them my way! My friend recently sent me a couple Ted Talks about dealing with some of the negativity I get on my website, so I was thinking about listening to those too! And if you think I should finally man up and download audible to listen to books on tape, well I’ll do that, too! I can’t believe I haven’t yet anyways! Tell me stuff!!

5 from 6 reviews

  • Yield: 22 jalapeños halves 1x


  • 11 jalapeños, cut in half, seeds removed (leave seeds if you like it spicy)
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce)
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 pound bacon (thin cut), each piece cut in half
  • sliced green onions
  • flake salt, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place rotisserie chicken in a stand mixer with the flat beater attachment and mix until completely shredded. Add mayo, hot sauce and black pepper and mix once more until completely combine.
  3. Scoop mixture into each jalapeño half (about 1-2 tablespoons worth) then wrap with 1/2 piece of bacon, with the ends tucked underneath the jalapeño. Repeat with all jalapeños.
  4. Place in oven to bake for 25-30 minutes, until bacon is completely cooked.
  5. Garnish with flake salt and green onions.

    Made these for the NYE party I attended and they were devoured! So damn good!!

  2. Donna says:

    I had to make this recipe because it has three of my favorite things wrapped into a couple of bites of pure bliss. My husband said he thought they were excellent, which he usually says when I make one of your recipes (he never knows it’s yours until after I tell him). These are so delish, and my kids were even digging in. I wrapped them in prosciutto just to try. Thanks for another amazing recipe!

  3. Claire Strickland says:

    Juli, I want to make these and the hasselback potatoes for NYE tonight but the cooking temps and times are different – any advice on which reheats better or a better way to time them? Thank you and happy new year!!

  4. Michelle says:

    Man these are good! I used some leftover grilled chicken in these and instead of using the mixer to “shred” the chicken I just chopped it up super fine 🙂 Used Primal Kitchens mayo and Franks red hot sauce as suggested. SO YUMMY!!!!

    Made these tonight! Yum!
