BEER CHEESE JALAPENO POPPERS
A recipe for jalapeno poppers stuffed with creamy, homemade beer cheese. These are the ultimate appetizer for game day or any party. Bake them up and watch them disappear.
Jalapeno poppers are one of my default appetizers. Whenever there is a party, 9 times out of 10, I will be making jalapeno poppers. They always disappear. They’re also super easy to prepare, making them a no-brainer for party situations and other gatherings.
This is not a complicated recipe, my friends. It’s rather easy, which is a GREAT thing, because we don’t want to work too hard when it comes to party time, do we? Nah. Let’s keep it simple.
HOW TO MAKE BEER CHEESE JALAPENO POPPERS
The amount you’ll need will vary based on the size of the peppers and, of course, your party situation, so be sure to plan accordingly. We’re making these boat style, so first, slice them in half and scoop out the insides with a spoon. You’ll be left with the empty skins, which are the perfect size for a bite-sized appetizer.
Next, whip up the beer cheese by mixing together cream cheese, crema, Colby Jack cheese, beer and seasonings in a bowl. So difficult, right? Look at this gorgeous beer dip.
You can eat this by itself, or make an extra batch and serve it with chips. Great stuff.
Next, spoon the beer cheese dip into the hollowed jalapeno halves and bake them about 20 minutes or so.
When they’re ready, set them onto a serving tray and sprinkle them while they are still hot with paprika or your favorite chili powder blend. This will add a bit of extra flavor and color.
Let them cool just a bit, and, if desired, you can drizzle them with some crema or sour cream. Or not. However you’d like to do it.
Then stand back! You’re in the way of those poppers! Watch them disappear! I’m not joking. People love these things. It’s almost a bit scary. Bring on the poppers!
HOW MANY JALAPENO POPPERS SHOULD I MAKE?
When making them “boat style” like this recipe, you’ll double the amounts, so 10 jalapeno peppers will make 20 poppers. Since they’re meant to be an appetizer, I like to figure on 1.5 – 2 per person. So figure accordingly.
