How to Make the Best Jalapeno Popper Puffs Recipe

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Jalapeno Popper Puffs: Two tubes classic crescent rolls, one block plain cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, jalapeno pepper, cooked and crumbled bacon, chopped green onions, salt, lemon pepper, granulated garlic and cumin. You’ll also need Ranch dressing for dipping.
  • Kitchen gadgets you’ll need: A non stick surface for assembling the rolls, a hand mixer or stand mixer, measuring cups and spoons, a large rubber spatula or spoon, cheese grater and sheet pans for baking the puffs.
  • You can prepare the mixture for the filling one day in advance and chill in the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble the puffs.
  • When assembling the puffs, it may be tempting to overfill them, but if you add too much filling while baking, it will just seep out the sides.
  • I like to use regular cut bacon for this recipe but you can also use thick cut bacon or any style of bacon you like.
  • Other cheese that would be good in these puffs: White cheddar, smoked or classic gouda, monterey jack, colby jack, pepper jack, mozzarella, chipotle gouda, etc.
  • For a little more heat, leave the seeds in the jalapenos if you want these spicier.
  • Dipping sauces you can use: Barbecue sauce, honey mustard, or Cajun ranch.
  • For even more heat, add some of your favorite hot sauce, or dice up a habanero, serrano, or Thai chile into the mix. This is for those who love heat, of course.
  • These make for a fun party appetizer and can be easily doubled or tripled depending on the guests you expect.
  • To reheat leftovers, only do so in a 350°F oven so the crescent rolls won’t become soggy.
  • Keep baked Jalapeno Popper Puffs chilled in the fridge for up to 5 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
