I love jalapeño poppers AND buffalo chicken so I decided to combine them both and really spice things up!
Baked Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers
These little Jalapeño Poppers pack a little kick! A delicious twist on the classic appetizer and the perfect halftime snack. A few more recipes with jalapenos I love are Low-Carb Jalapeno Popper “Nachos” and Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken!
These jalapeño poppers are so good and real easy to make. The perfect hot appetizer for watching them game or getting together with friends. Prep them ahead and bake them just before you’re ready to serve. They should be served hot, so don’t bake them ahead.
How To Make Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers
The buffalo chicken filling is easy! You can use leftover chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken, or cook it yourself in the slow cooker. Just cover with water or chicken broth and cook 4 hours low, then shred. Add some cream cheese, hot cayenne pepper sauce and scallions and mix them all together! Stuff them into jalapeño halves, bread and bake! They are mildly spicy, and so good!
Variations and Tips
- To make these jalapeno poppers low-carb skip the panko and wrap them with bacon instead.
- Wear Gloves – please do yourself a favor and wear gloves when you cut the peppers. And don’t put your hands in your eyes or mouth after, it will burn.
