I love jalapeno poppers! These spicy jalapeno poppers are a delicious twist on the classic appetizer. A few more of my favorite party apps with jalapenos are Low-Carb Jalapeno Popper “Nachos” and Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken!

These are so good and real easy to make. The perfect hot appetizer for watching them game or getting together with friends. Prep them ahead and bake them just before you’re ready to serve. They should be served hot, so don’t bake them ahead.

The buffalo chicken filling is easy! You can use leftover chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken, or cook it yourself in the slow cooker. Just cover with water or chicken broth and cook 4 hours low, then shred. Add some cream cheese, hot cayenne pepper sauce and scallions and mix them all together! They are mildly spicy, and so good!

Variations and Tips

To make these jalapeno peppers low-carb or gluten free, skip the panko and wrap them with bacon instead.  Just please do yourself a favor and wear gloves when you cut the peppers. And don’t put your hands in your eyes or mouth after, it will burn.
