Baked Jalapeno Poppers

I love game day! Don't fool yourself, its not because I'm a huge football fan. I love game day because of the food....that's really it. Ok...and the beer too....and hanging out with friends. Really, I like everything about game day except the game...hahah.  I'm one of those people that pretend to like sports, but have no idea of whats going on. For example, yesterday I was trying to prove to my brother that I liked football and I told him that touchdowns were 12 points. He laughed at me. For those of you who are as football stupid as me..touchdowns are actually 6 points...oops.

Whether you are a football fan or not, here is an amazing and easy recipe for jalopeno poppers. They are delicious! The best part is that there is no messy breading involved. All you have to do is throw them in the oven and bake them. Stuffing the peppers can be a little tedious, so you can even stuff the peppers a day before the game.

Recipe Source: Kraft Recipes

  • 18 fresh jalapenos (the recipe will actually make 36 jalapeno poppers because you'll be cutting the jalapenos in half)
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut jalopenos in half, and remove all the seeds and veins. This is where all the heat is so make sure you clean them out really well.
  • Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, onion, and cilantro.
  • Spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray.
  • Stuff each jalopeno with the cream cheese mixture and place on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 mins.

  3. Ahh i hear so much about "game days" and being in the UK, I've never experienced one! We have "the match" but since everyone supports different teams, it's a cramped 90 minutes of sweaty men, down the pub, yelling at each other, the TV and getting annoyed. You've painted such a fab picture for me though, I can almost imagine what it would be like =D These looks gorgeous though, can I have them without the game please? =]

  4. I enjoy game day for the food, too!!! I love how you added cilantro to these (my fave herb). It's something that never occurred to me---thanks for the foodspiration! =)
