Let me tell you, these poppers are so delicious! The heat from the peppers blends beautifully with the creamy/garlic-y filling! Each time I make these, they are gone in minutes. I promise you they will not disappoint.
They are a perfect little snack to have around when guests arrive, or when you’re in the mood to simply treat yourself! I’ve made this recipe specifically without any bacon as I know many poppers use bacon as an ingredient, but I was looking to make a vegetarian version.
If you try this recipe out, I hope you enjoy these little guys as much as we do!
Here’s what I used to make them:
- 380 grams Jalapeno Peppers (11 [3-4 inch] peppers), seeded and halved
- 1 tablespoon green onion, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- salt to taste
I started by preheating my oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit.
I then mixed together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic and green onion.
I then tasted this mixture to see if any salt was needed. I typically find that I don’t need to add any salt here because the sharp cheddar cheese adds enough, but please feel free to add salt here if you need to.
Next, I place the pepper halves on a baking tray (be sure to line your tray first for an easier clean-up!), and fill each pepper half with the cheese mixture, being sure to distribute the filling equally.
Finally, I bake these guys for about 30 minutes.
And VOILA – you’re done!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
