Jalapeno Popper Bombs are filled with spicy jalapenos, cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, and then baked to golden perfection. They’re the perfect appetizer!
Now that we are in the midst of football season, it’s always fun sharing football food with friends. We love supporting my husband’s alma matter, the Georgia Bulldogs, and we’ve made a tradition out of making an appetizer for family and friends to snack on during the game. These Jalapeno Popper Bombs only have 8 ingredients, take about 30 minutes to make, and will have your whole house cheering for more! This post today is sponsored by Pillsbury, however all opinions are my own. Make sure to scroll all the way through the post for exciting GIVEAWAY/CONTEST details!
Y’all have to try these Jalapeno Popper Bombs for your next get together (or for dinner, just saying..), because everyone will LOVE them! I have made them twice now, and whenever I do people are begging me for the recipe. When we were having them last time, it was so funny because my youngest son went straight for these Jalapeno Popper Bombs. We didn’t realize he was eating these ones, and not the regular non-spicy version. All of a sudden he was yelling because it was spicy, but we still didn’t realize why! After he told us his ‘mouth was spicy’, we gave him some milk and had a good laugh because we were surprised he kept eating it! Keep your eyes on the kiddos around these because they do pack a kick of spice! Also, no one ever believes they are only eight ingredients and take 30 minutes to make. Jalapeno Popper bombs are seriously the BOMB appetizer. They’re so simple to make, too.
You definitely need to use Pillsbury Biscuits for this recipe! I like the Homestyle Buttermilk 8 count package, in the flakey original style. Pillsbury biscuits just make the perfect dough base for the Jalapeno Popper Bombs. They also have aPillsbury Bake-Off® Contest going on right now, so be sure to click over and submit your own recipes!
In a bowl, mix your filling together and then cut your biscuits in half; stretching them out a bit. Scoop about a tablespoon of filling into the center of the each biscuit and then pull the dough up from the sides to close them up. Next, pop them into your skillet or baking dish, brush some melted butter and parmesan cheese over the top, and bake! Once they are done, brush some more butter over the top, sprinkle with some more cheese and parsley, and serve…SO EASY!
- 1 package Pillsbury Homestyle Buttermilk 8ct Flaky Layer Original (8ct), each biscuit cut in half
- 4 ounce can pickled jalapenos drained and chopped
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 3 ounces pepper jack cheese shredded
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 TBS butter melted
- 1 TBS parmesan cheese
- 1 TBS butter melted
- 1 ounce pepper jack cheese shredded
- 1 TBS parsley minced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl mix together jalapenos, cream cheese, 3 oz. pepper jack cheese, and garlic; set aside.
Taking 1/2 piece of biscuit dough, flatten and stretch it out slightly. Add about 1 TBS jalapeno mixture to the center of the dough, then pull the side up and press together to seal and close. Repeat for all dough.
Using a cast iron skillet or round baking dish coated with nonstick spray, place bombs slightly apart, so they are not touching but not too far apart. Brush 2 TBS melted butter over the top and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Place into oven and cook for 30 minutes. Remove and add 1 TBS butter over the top and 1 ounce pepper jack cheese. Place back into oven for 1 minute to melt cheese. Remove. Sprinkle parsley over the top and serve!
