This Is My Favorite Jalapeño Popper Recipe
My mom and I are both huge jalapeño popper fans. BIG TIME. Since Jorge had his first work trip out of town, my mom has been staying with me to help take care of the girls. We pretty much do nothing else besides feed babies and change diapers, but occasionally we remember to eat. 😉
A couple of nights ago we roasted some chicken and we had some leftover chicken to use up the next day. So I went with what we had in the fridge already, and these Jalapeño Poppers were whipped up. We weren’t expecting too much, but after our first bite we shoved at least 2 more in our mouths. These are my new favorite way to eat jalapeño poppers!
- 6 large jalapeños, seeded and sliced in half lengthwise
- 4 oz PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup shredded chicken
- 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 green onions, minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Frank's RedHot Buffalo Sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
Turn oven on to broil. Cover a large baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Place peppers on prepared pan, skin side facing up. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until the skin is starting to blister and blacken in places. Remove from oven.
While peppers are broiling, in a medium size bowl, combine cream cheese, chicken, cheddar cheese, green onion, buffalo sauce and salt.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Let jalapeños cool for a couple of minutes, or until you can touch them without burning yourself. Once peppers are manageable, stuff with chicken mixture and place back on prepared pan. Sprinkle tops with breadcrumbs and lightly press breadcrumbs so they stick.
Bake poppers for 8 to 10 minutes, or until bread crumbs start to slightly brown. Serve immediately.
