Jalapeño Poppers

Jalapeño Poppers are my obsession! Fresh jalapeños are sliced in half and filled with a rich creamy cheese filling and topped with a crisp Panko topping. These poppers are baked until golden and bubbly for the perfect summer BBQ snack!

This easy Jalapeno Popper recipe makes the perfect bite; crispy, creamy, spicy, cheesy… and quite honestly the best appetizer ever!

Making homemade poppers is super easy and tastes way better than frozen store bought!

Ingredients:

  • 12 jalapeno peppers
  • 6 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar shredded
  • 2 tablespoons chives finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Wearing gloves, slice the jalapenos in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon, scoop out the seeds and membranes.
  • In a bowl mix cream cheese, garlic powder, cheddar cheese and chives (if using).
  • In a separate bowl, combine Panko crumbs and melted butter.
  • Fill jalapenos with the cheese mixture. Top with crumbs.
  • Place on a baking pan and bake 18-22 minutes or until golden.
  • Cool 5-10 minutes before serving.

Enjoy – see you in the Kitchen!
