Jalapeno Poppers

poppers

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.
