Jalapeno Peppers Stuffed

Updated on July 28, 2015
5 stars from 1 rating of Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

This is a most delicious appetizer! Whether you call it Jalapeno Poppers or Jalapeno Peppers, once you share it with family and friends they will request you to make it for every gathering.

Once the Jalapeno Peppers are cleaned-membranes and seeds removed-even people who don't especially like "hot" food really enjoy these. They are easy to make, can be prepared ahead of time and disappear as soon as they are served!

      It is worth trying...very yummy:) Guess I can stay with the current title then..."popping" them into your mouth sounds good. Thanks for your comment.

      They are called "popper." Maybe the name represents "popping them into your mouth. My girlfriend makes them. The recipe is a bit different. This one sounds worth trying.

      Thanks :)

      Hi:) That's what my boyfriend calls them. Do "poppers" have to be filled and deep-fried to be called "poppers"? Perhaps, Stuffed Jalapeno peppers then? Thanks for the comment.
