A recipe for jalapeno poppers stuffed with seasoned pulled pork, cheese and lots of spicy sriracha. Time to bake them up. Poppers are the perfect party appetizer.
What do you do when you have leftover pulled pork? Leftover tacos is an obvious choice, but how about something more fun, like poppers! The other day I made another batch of roasted poblano pulled pork for quick and easy tacos, and we had quite a bit leftover.
I like to make larger batches of pulled pork for this reason. There are only two of us here and pork is easy to add to any number of creative dishes.
Jalapeno poppers are some of my favorites. Bite-sized deliciousness, easy to prepare, super easy to enjoy, no forks necessary. Jalapeno poppers are the uber appetizer and party food.
They're also perfect for when the weather turns nice and you can sit out on your patio in the sun with a plateful of these babies. Check it out...just core out your jalapeno peppers.
How to Make These Pulled Pork-Sriracha Jalapeno Poppers - the Recipe Method
I usually like to serve them boat style, by first slicing them in half down the middle, then coring them, like so.
Then pop them onto a baking dish to get ready for stuffing.
Grab a mixing bowl and mix together some prepared pulled pork with sriracha, fresh garlic and chili powder. Make it nice and spicy. I love this!
Stuff the jalapeno halves with the pork mixture and top with freshly grated cheddar cheese, like so.
Then, bake them up!
Finally, top them with with Sriracha, or with your favorite hot sauce, if desired, or some fresh herbs.
Viola! Pulled Pork-Sriracha Jalapeno Poppers. So good!
I hope you enjoy them, my friends! They're so good! Perfect for any party.
