So they might be a tad bigger than the typical appetizer, but if you fill up on these, you won’t have to stuff your face with all the other snacks!  Haha.

My husband had a small complaint that he wished I would have left some of the seeds in the peppers because he likes his hotter, but I thought they were delicious as is!

I’m not even a typical jalapeno fan unless it’s pureed up in salsa, but the cooling cream cheese, salty bacon, and tender crescent roll had me wanting more!

What Are Jalapeno Poppers?

Jalapeno poppers are jalapeño peppers that have been hollowed out, stuffed with a mixture of cheese, spices, and sometimes ground meat.

They are then breaded and deep fried.

Can Jalapeno Poppers be Made Ahead of Time?

You can totally make jalapeno poppers ahead of time.

They can be assembled and refrigerated or frozen until you’re ready to use them.

What Is The Difference Between Cream Cheese and Neufchatel Cheese?

The biggest difference between Neufchâtel and Cream Cheese is, the dairy product that they are made from.

Neufchatel is made using milk exclusively (23% milkfat).

Cream cheese is made with milk and cream (33% milk fat).

They can be used interchangeably in recipes.

  • These look fantastic and so simple. I am going to use some left over slices of serrano ham lightly pan fried.
