Jalapeño Poppers

Jalapeño poppers, or “stuffed jalapeños,” make the perfect game day/party appetizer. I learned how to make this version of jalapeño poppers from my friend Logan when we were in dental hygiene school. The stuffing is so delicious and rich that the poppers don’t need to be wrapped in bacon.


Brown Jimmy Dean, drain the fat. Stir in cream cheese and parmesan.

Stuff the jalapeños that have been sliced in half and seeds and membrane removed.

Bake until golden brown and jalapeños are tender. Delish!
