Spicy Poppers

Another great recipe from the Taste of Home Cooking School! These jalapeno poppers are delicious and the addition of the crescent dough takes away a little of the kick so that they aren't as spicy.

Fire level: orange-red

Crescent Jalapeno Poppers
  • 4 jalapeno chiles
  • 1/3 cup Boursin cheese with garlic and herbs
  • 8 slices packaged precooked bacon, halved
  • 1 can (8 oz.) crescent dinner rolls
  • 1/2 cup pineapple or fruit salsa for dipping

STEP 1: Prepare your peppers
Destem and Deseed the chiles. The more seeds you leave in, the spicier the chiles will be. Cut each chile lengthwise, and then lengthwise again, creating four long jalapeno chile pieces from each pepper.

STEP 2: Prep your poppers
Spoon about 1 teaspoon of cheese into each chile quarter. Wrap a half slice of bacon around each stuffed chile quarter.

STEP 3: Wrap your poppers
On a cutting board, unroll the crescent dough. It should show 8 triangles. Cut each triangle in half from largest corner, creating 16 pieces. Place the chile, cheese side down, onto the middle of the dough triangle. Fold one point of triangle over filling, fold two remaining points over the first point. Place all of the poppers on ungreased cookie sheet.

STEP 4: Cook your poppers
Bake the poppers 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with the fruit salsa and it will cut out some of the spice. Enjoy! They are quite tasty.
