These jalapeno poppers are awesome. I added some crumbled bacon bits and sprayed each one with olive oil spray and baked them in the oven until golden brown at 350 versus frying them in oil. They turned out great and they were the hit of my party. Thank you for posting this recipe!
these were a fantastic addition to my super bowl menu! the only change i made was to use puff pastry instead of wontons (i didn't want to be working the deep fryer during my party-plus the smell of the deep fryer can be offensive! so i guess technically they still were jalapeno popper puffs!) this worked out great because i was able to make these up ahead of time and freeze. then time of party all i had to do was brush with a little egg wash and bake!! thanks for a winner reicpe carol! everyone loved these!!
I cooked these in my deep fryer and served with Bronco Berry Sauce by Todd Wilbur for Arby's Jalapeno Poppers Bronco Berry Sauce (Dip) - for Arby's Jalapeno Poppers (with the best substitutions availible in my kitchen). These are wonderful! This was my first attempt at jalapeno poppers and I will never have the desire to make them any other way! Thank you for posting this!
