Ingredients

  • 6 strips vegan bacon , optional
  • 12 jalapeños
  • ¾ cup vegan cream cheese , we like Kite Hill
  • 1.5 cups grated vegan cheddar cheese , we like Violife
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • A handful gluten-free / grain-free tortilla chips , we like Siete

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Cut vegan bacon (if using) into small pieces and pan fry in a little oil on medium heat for a few minutes until crispy. Set aside.
  3. Cut the jalapeños in half lengthways, then scoop out the seeds and membrane with a spoon. A melon spoon works well to get them out. You may want to wear gloves when touching the jalapeños to avoid any burning.

    Place the jalapeños onto a lined baking sheet.
