While impatiently waiting on my chili to cook, I decided we needed an appetizer. Baked jalapeno poppers are a quick spicy fix for the hungry, chili craving belly. Enjoy!
- 6 jalapeno peppers
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 teaspoon chili spice
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cheddar cheese, shredded
Cut jalapenos in half and scrape out seeds and ribs (leave a little rib tor a spicier popper).
In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese and spices. Spoon cream cheese mixture into each pepper half. Top each pepper with about 1 Tablespoon of cheese.
Place peppers in a greased dish and bake at 375F for about 25-30 minutes. Cheese should be starting to brown and filling should start to bubble.
