JalapeÑo Poppers

Jalapeño poppers are the perfect appetizer and snack! They’re stuffed with a tasty cream cheese filling and topped with crispy panko breadcrumbs, then baked until golden and bubbly.

Let’s get started!

- jalapeño - cream cheese - sour cream - shredded cheese - green onions - panko breadcrumbs - garlic powder  - onion powder - kosher salt - butter

Ingredients Needed

Remove the seeds and membranes of the peppers for less heat, or leave some in for an extra kick.

*Quick Tip!*

Slice each jalapeño in half, then scoop out the seeds and the membranes with a small spoon and discard.


Make the cream cheese mixture by combining a block of softened cream cheese with green onions, cilantro, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.


Make the breadcrumb mixture by combining breadcrumbs with melted butter. Stuff each jalapeño with the cream cheese filling and top with breadcrumbs.


Bake for 18 minutes until golden and crispy. Garnish with more green onions and enjoy!
