Baked Jalapeno Poppers

Oh goodness, there are so many updates on the house and living in the area that I could write about right now. But as you may have surmised based on my lack of recent updates, things have been pretty crazy around here lately. Tons of projects around the house, school, holidays and cross-country road trips have kept me plenty busy. However, I managed to find a bit of time last week to make some baked jalapeno poppers. So as a quick post until I can get into more detail on what we’ve been up to, here is the recipe I used/modified for some delicious jalapeno poppers!

First, get some fresh jalapenos. Mine were on sale at Aldi, which initiated this whole adventure. I cut the jalapenos in half – you wouldn’t have to, but it does make the stuffing get crispy which I do think increases the deliciousness.


8 regular-ish sized jalapenos, seeded and halved


8 oz light cream cheese

1/2 c diced onion (based on preference – this is a lot of onion, but Dan and I love onions and it gives the stuffing a nice texture)

1/8 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/2 shredded cheddar

Mix all of the stuffing ingredients together, stuff into halved jalapenos

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes, broil for 2 minutes

Boom. Oooey gooey yumminess.
