I think the person who loved them most (after me) was the Dad-to-be. He even took some home. Some of the other girls gave me that “thanks, but no thanks” look. That’s okay…more for the rest of us 😉
These would be a big hit on gameday! They’re also a great low carb treat. Give them a shot.
Baked Sriracha “Poppers”
adapted from Oishii
12 medium/large jalapeno peppers
7 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons Sriracha
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon cumin
salt and pepper
olive oil for the pan
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread a little oil on top (or use cooking spray).
Carefully clean jalapenos by slicing them lengthwise down the middle and gutting out the insides (a spoon is helpful). Wear gloves if necessary, or be sure to wash your hands after handling them.
Mix the cheeses, Sriracha, salt, pepper and cumin in a bowl. Fill each jalapeno half with mixture. Place on prepared pan.
Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes, or until cheese starts bubbling.
