Jalapeno poppers are TOPS when it comes to popular party food. They’re the perfect bite sized food and they’re all out tasty and truly, they’re crazy easy to make. Simple is better, right? So you can eat and enjoy the game.

And the party.

With these jalapeno poppers, we’re keeping them super simple because we’re going back to basics and stuffing them with a spiced cream cheese and cheddar cheese mixture, stuffing the jalapeno peppers boat style, then baking them.

No need for frying. No need for the grill, though you can surely grill them if you’d like. Just super delicious, super easy, crazy awesome food!

Let’s talk about how we make them, shall we?

How to Make Baked Cream Cheese Jalapeno Poppers – The Recipe Method

First, slice the jalapeno peppers in half and core out the insides. I like to use a spoon to make it easy, but a knife or a jalapeno corer will work great, too.

Coring Jalapeno Peppers for our Cream Cheese Jalapeno Poppers

Set the cored jalapeno peppers onto a lightly oiled baking sheet.

Next, in a mixing bowl, combine your cheeses and spices. Here, we’re using softened cream cheese, mild white cheddar, chili powder,  garlic, cumin, and salt and pepper.

Mix it all together. Like so.

Fill each jalapeno pepper with the seasoned cheese mixture. You might have some leftover, depending on the size of your peppers. Just distribute evenly.

Stuffing the Jalapeno Peppers

Bake the jalapeno poppers about 20 minutes, or until the peppers soften and the cheeses are bubbly.

Remove from heat, cool slightly, then dust with chili powder and spicy chili flakes.

BOOM! DONE!

You’ve got yourself some crazy awesome baked jalapeno poppers and they’re ready to serve! Set them loose and stand back. You don’t want to lose an arm in there.

Seriously, people go CRAZY for these! Beware. Really, you may want to make a double or even triple batch of these. Make friends. Influence people. With poppers.

Enjoy them!

  1. I have made these with only old cheddar for years, long before I ever heard about poppers. I was surprised that someone called min poppers as I had the idea that poppers were deep fried. I will add some cream cheese next time; they might help fill them up a bit more. I also like your idea of adding shrimp – that would cover all the food groups! and I could make a meal of them!
