Baked Jalapeno Poppers

The first time I had stuffed jalapenos at a restaurant, couldn’t get over them. The spicy, creamy, tangy combination was like nothing I’d ever tried before, and I couldn’t stop craving them.

Jalapeno Poppers is a Tex-Mex & American dish, which draws inspiration from Mexican cuisine, and gained global popularity in the 1980s – with good reason! One bite of my Baked Jalapeno Poppers, and you’ll know why too.
