Break out these jalapeno poppers at your next grill out or sports watch party. Your friends and family will thank you.
Jalapeno poppers are one of my favorite appetizers, and they are extremely easy to make which makes them a fantastic go to snack during the day as well.
Whether you like a spicier pepper or those on the milder side, you should be able to make this recipe to your tastes. While I haven’t tested this information, my understanding is the older the pepper the hotter it will be. You can tell the age of a jalapeno based, typically, on it’s color and if it has striations down the side. Younger peppers will be a lighter green, while older peppers will be darker green and eventually develop some lines down the sides. Of course, this isn’t a foolproof method to determine heat level. Younger looking peppers might be spicier, while older looking ones might be a bit milder. Either way, it’s at least some good advice to test out.
One warning I’ll give you on this recipe is to be careful of overdoing it on your carbs if you’re tracking them. One whole jalapeno is a serving size, so that’s just two of the stuffed halves. Each serving has 2 carbs and less than 1g of fiber (with the ingredients and per the nutrition tracker I used). I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in wanting to pop several of these delicious, spicy creations in my mouth. They are called jalapeno poppers, after all, and they are easy to mindlessly eat as a snack.
