I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year! I took a much needed 11 days off from work during the holidays and slept, crafted, played games, and saw friends and family. Now that we’re well into the new year though, I’m making plans and goals and trying to be productive.
A few of my goals are to write blog posts and post on Instagram more regularly, finish P90X3 (which I started last week), craft at least two nights a week and get more sleep!
Today’s post is about: jalapeño poppers!!
I made these for my husband’s birthday party/game night in November. It was my first time making them and they turned out soooooo goood! They were eaten up fairly quickly out of all the treats that I made. If you want the full recipe, please visit this blog.
I didn’t think far enough in advance, so I had to heat the cream cheese in the microwave a little to bring it to room temperature. After that, I mixed it up with chopped jalapeño (de-seeded). Instead of wonton wrappers, I found egg roll wrappers at the store. Those worked great! I cut each piece into 4 and used 3 of them per popper to form the nice crispy shell.
After loading the top with cheese, bacon and one slice of jalapeño, I baked the poppers for about 10 minutes until the edges were crispy and the cheese was fully melted. Looks so good doesn’t it!? By the way, if you’re vegetarian, you can easily just not add the bacon – like I did on the the right half of the picture below.
Just thinking about these makes me want to make them again… such a cheesy, gooey, delicious treat!
