Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Popcorn
Spicy fried jalapenos is a classic appetizer that everyone wants! Take a bite of these cheesy popcorn and let the flavor explode!
A classic appetizer, these jalapenos are warm, cheesy, and delicious. Eat it alone or with a dipping sauce, you can’t go wrong with this dish. If you like it, you will also like our jalapeno sauce!
Jalapeño poppers is one of my favorite appetizer recipes. These heavenly snacks are fried until golden brown, and all the cream cheese’s essence is melted inside.
The taste of these popcorn is amazing. Spicy and cheesy, simply addictive! Perfect for people who like a lot of spice, crunch and cheese (they are similar to our sausage stuffed jalapenos).
Unfortunately, these bad kids didn’t stay in our house for long (they disappeared after a few minutes!) The crispy crust is deep-fried and won’t slip off after being taken out and dried. If you like jalapenos as much as we do, then you should try our jalapenos! It is very delicious and a delicious appetizer that we like very much.
How to make jalapeno popcorn
Don’t be intimidated by the fried part of this recipe. It’s very simple-I promise!
filling. First, mix cream cheese and grated cheese in a bowl. After mixing, scoop a few tablespoons of this mixture into half of the pepper.
bread. Put milk, flour, and breadcrumbs in a separate small bowl. Dip the jalapeno in the milk, then in the flour, and then in the milk. Dip the chili in the bowl with breadcrumbs, making sure it is all coated. If you want to make sure they have an extra coating, re-dip them in milk and then in the breadcrumbs.
saute. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Saute each jalapeno for a few minutes or until golden brown. Let the popcorn pour on a plate lined with paper towels. Be sure to serve it warm with ranch (did you make our homemade ranch sauce?) or other dipping sauce.
More cooking options:
oven: If you want, you can bake these popcorn instead of frying them. Simply preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown and the cheese melted inside.
Air fryer: You can also blow them up with air. Adjust the air fryer to 375 degrees. Cook them for 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown. Turn them halfway so they can cook evenly.

Fill changes. Try changing the filling of the jalapeno popcorn to create different flavors!
