Pulled Pork Jalapeno Poppers

Yes, it’s true. I have found a way to improve upon the already delicious jalapeno popper! The addition of pulled pork adds a wonderfully smoky flavor and transforms the popper from a mere snack to a meal. In this recipe, the poppers are baked and not fried, and as far as I am concerned, this renders them healthy. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover pulled pork, ribs, or even taco meat. Be creative!!



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the pulled pork, softened cream cheese, cheddar, and monterey jack cheese.

Halve the jalapenos, lengthwise and remove seeds and ribs.

With a small spoon, scoop the filling into each half of the pepper.

Dip the poppers into the breadcrumbs and press down to ensure the crumbs stick to the cheese.

Arrange on a sheet pan and spray tops with cooking spray.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until slightly browned.
