Jalapeno Popper Recipe

My boyfriend Ben LOVEEESSS Jalapenos and anything spicy.  So when I came across a Jalapeno Popper Recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything with over 4,000 pins I had to give it a try. Seeing how Christy used crescent rolls also inspired me to think of other great ways I could use it.  Maybe a pulled pork recipe or buffalo chicken next?  Who knows, but this recipe is definitely worth a try.


Ease: 5

Impression: 4

Gold Confetti

Total Price: $11.15 for 16 poppers


1 can of Pillsbury crescent rolls (8 oz.)

4 jalapeno diced

8 slices of bacon crumbled

8 oz. cream cheese

jalapeno popper ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper.
  • Open can of crescent rolls and separate each roll.  Pillsbury precut the rolls so you just need to carefully separate or use a knife to separate.
  • Once the rolls are separated you will want to cut each triangles in half.
  • In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, diced jalapenos, and crumbled bacon.
  • Place 1 teaspoon of the mixture on the crescent roll and gather the edges of the dough to cover and create a ball appearance.
  • Gather the edges of the dough to cover mixture and make sure filling is sealed inside.  Place the ball of dough seam side down and bake for 11-14 minutes.

This is a great appetizer for any family or group gathering.  It only took me 10 minutes to prep and 14 minutes in the oven.
