  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Line a plate with paper towel.
  • In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon, stirring often, until brown and crispy, about 5 minutes. Transfer the cooked bacon to the prepared plate; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, and pepper and mix to combine; set aside.
  • Starting at the bottom of each jalapeño, carefully slice each pepper in half lengthwise, cutting through the stem. Use the tip of a small spoon to remove and discard the seeds and membranes from each pepper.
  • Fill each jalapeño halfway with the cheese mixture, about 2 to 3 teaspoons depending on pepper size. Lay the stuffed peppers cut side up on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes.
  • Top the peppers with the crumbled bacon and the sliced green onion. Serve.
