Four Cheese Jalapeno Poppers

Four Cheese Jalapeno Poppers - The Recipe Four Cheese Jalapeno Poppers - The Recipe

A recipe for jalapeno poppers stuffed with a mixture of four different cheeses for a decadent and delicious party favor or appetizer.

Jalapeno popppers are the uber appetizer. I'm sure I've said this before.They are crazy delicious and extremely popular. Why else would I write ann entire cookbook dedicated to them? Yep. See "Jalapeno Poppers and Other Stuffed Chili Peppers - the Cookbook". I could not help myself. I'm what you call a superfan. While other people are dreaming of their favorite sports team or their fantasy league, I'm dreaming about jalapeno poppers. Bring them on! They are perfection in a single bite.

Everytime I make jalapeno poppers for a party, they are the first things to go. Especially when they're stuffed with loads of ooey-gooey cheese, and this recipe is no exception. We're talking a combination of four different cheeses - cream cheese, goat cheese, asiago and white cheddar. It's a great combination, with plenty enough of the creamy cheese to help everything blend together into a consistent bite. Seriously, make these and watch them disappear in a matter of minutes. So, now that we have the poppers, it is party time. Time to go to the game. I'll be at the table with all the jalapeno poppers.

Four Cheese Jalapeno Poppers

Patty's Perspective: It's crazy when we bring these to a party. Everyone dives in immediately. Gone in seconds. Don't fear the popper. Since they're cored, the heat is completely tamed. Even people who shun spicy food can enjoy these. Way awesome!

Here is the mentioned book! Enjoy! Get more jalapeno popper recipes here.

    These look awesome and will try. Can you freeze them after they are baked or should you freeze them before baking? Just wanted to make a whole bunch and bring out and to heat up for drop-in company.

    REPLY: Brenda, yes, you can freeze these BEFORE cooking them. Just cook them a bit longer to make sure they cook through properly. -- Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.

    This is a more sophisticated version of what I have been making for years. I use only sharp cheddar and often have them as a snack. It is interested that you think people who don't eat spicy food would like these. I'm not so sure.

    REPLY: Hi, we actually mention that they are not spicy, and non-spicy food lovers would be able to enjoy these. So good! -- Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.
