Baked Cream Cheese Jalapeno Poppers Recipe

These jalapeno poppers are stuffed with a spiced mixture of cream cheese and white cheddar cheese, then baked until the cheese is nice and melty. This is the ultimate game day or party treat! And SUPER EASY to make. Here is the recipe.

How to Make Baked Cream Cheese Jalapeno Poppers – The Recipe Method
First, slice the jalapeno peppers in half and core out the insides. I like to use a spoon to make it easy, but a knife or a jalapeno corer will work great, too.
Set the cored hot peppers onto a lightly oiled baking sheet. Just line the baking sheet.
Next, in a medium bowl, combine your cheeses and spices. Here, we’re using softened cream cheese, mild white cheddar, chili powder,  garlic, cumin, and salt and pepper.
Mix it all together. Like so.
Fill each jalapeno pepper with the seasoned cheese mixture. You might have some leftover, depending on the size of your peppers. Just distribute evenly.
Bake the jalapeno poppers about 20 minutes, or until the peppers soften and the cheeses are bubbly. It could be up to 30 minutes. The cheesy stuffing will be nice and golden brown.
Remove from heat, cool slightly, then dust with chili powder and spicy chili flakes.

Recipe Notes
It is best to wear gloves when handling hot peppers and removing the seeds an innards. The peppers contain oils that can cause a  burning sensation on your skin.

Can I Make These on the Grill?
Of course! You can make this recipe on the grill instead of in the oven. To do so, follow all of the recipe instructions for coring out the jalapenos. Go ahead and mix your cream cheese stuffing.
When you’re ready to get cooking, preheat the grill to medium heat, or 350 degrees F. if you can control the temperature.
Grill or bake them on the grill for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the cheeses are nice and bubbly. That’s it! You can top them with crumbly bread crumbs if you’d like for extra crunch.
Enjoy them!
