FAQs About This Recipe

Can I cook these jalapeno poppers in an air fryer?

Yes! These jalapeno poppers can be cooked in an air fryer. Just place them in a single layer and cook for about 15 minutes on 325° F.

How do you store these jalapeno poppers?

We store them in 3.4 cup meal prep containers, but there is a lot of room to spare in these containers. If you have something smaller, but wide enough to lay the jalapeno poppers flat, that will work perfectly.

Tips From the Kitchen

Light on the creme cheese: We think that most people would naturally assume you should fill the jalapenos with cream cheese as much as possible. We’ve found doing this makes the cream cheese really take over the flavor and texture of these jalapeno poppers. We’d recommend going lighter on the cream cheese, filling the jalapenos about halfway up, before topping with cheese… Unless you really, really enjoy cream cheese.

Wear gloves when handling peppers: Jalapeno peppers have a subtle, almost unnoticeable heat when they’re being handled. At least in our opinion, but maybe were desensitized. However, you will notice the heat lingering on your fingers afterwards – so we recommend wearing gloves!
