PUFF PASTRY JALAPEÑO POPPERS

February 23, 2013

Alright, let’s just start with it. My husband said with a simple yet unwavering boldness that these are the best jalapeño poppers he has ever had by far. That’s got me feeling like a homemaking and general wife all star. It’d be pretty easy to have gone through your life up to this point never having eaten a jalapeño popper with something resembling a fresh ingredient.

BUT IF YOU TRY THIS, I think you will see that with just the tiniest bit of homemade, while still keeping it quite easy, is going to change your party app thoughts for some time.

Just six ingredients! They are fast too!

Puff Pastry Jalapeño Poppers
Makes 24 poppers

8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup colby jack cheese
2/3 cup bacon pieces
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
12 jalapeños, halved and seeds removed
1 box puff pastry (2 sheets)
1 egg
1 tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix together cream cheese, colby jack cheese, bacon pieces, and garlic powder. Stuff filling into jalapeño halves.

Use a rolling pin to flatten the puff pastry out into a larger rectangle. Slice into 12 pieces. Wrap puff pastry around stuffed jalapeños.

Whisk together egg with water. Brush egg wash on top of poppers.

Bake for 20 minutes.
