Air Fryer Jalapeno Poppers are an appetizer staple, and this version will be your go-to recipe. Using the air fryer, they are done in under 10 minutes and amazingly delicious!
Soften cream cheese (microwave 30 seconds in microwave safe bowl or leave on counter for 30 minutes). Add salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic to the softened cream cheese. Add finely grated extra sharp cheddar cheese and Monterey cheese. Mix with a fork until everything is completely combined.
Wash the whole jalapeños, then cut them in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Set them aside. WASH YOUR HANDS!
Fill the jalapeños with filling; Spoon the filling into the empty pocket until it’s full. I like to overfill them a little, but that is up to you!
Place them into the air fryer basket and close it. Set the Air Fryer to 370 degrees and 7 minutes. Once the time is up, open the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes.
Remove carefully from the air fryer and top with cooked crumbled bacon and green onions if desired.
