Baked jalapeno poppers recipe

These baked jalapeno poppers come filled with a secret ingredient that is in a large enough dose to leave everyone who tries some tingling from head to toe, so be sure to warn your guests before they dig in. This jalapeno poppers recipe is filled to the brim with a variety of cheeses that blend together in just such a way, that it really takes away from the bite of the spicy hot peppers, so even if you aren’t a fan of super spicy foods, you might still love this one.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Calories: 28

Servings: 12


  • 12 fresh jalapeno peppers
  • ¼ cup panko crumbs
  • 6 ounces of softened plain cream cheese
  • 4 ounces of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon of softened cannabutter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Gloves
  • Teaspoon
  • Paring knife
  • Electric mixer
  • Two bowls
  • Fork
  • Baking pan


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Put on a pair of gloves before you go to work, removing the seeds from the jalapeno peppers.

  • To remove the seeds, use a paring knife to cut the jalapeno peppers lengthways and then scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon and toss them into the garbage.

  • Combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions and garlic powder in a bowl using an electric mixer, set to medium speed, until they are well blended.

  • Add the cannabutter and the Panko crumbs to a different bowl and use a fork to stir the two together until the mixture appears to be an even color and consistency.

  • Rinse all of the jalapeno peppers to ensure that all of the seeds and juices are gone, which can help to reduce the spiciness, and then fill each of the cups with an even portion of the cheese mixture.

  • Top each of the peppers with a layer of the crumb mixture, and then spread them across a baking pan.

  • Bake the jalapeno poppers for 20 minutes, or until the cheese gets a nice hint of golden brown around the outer edges.

  • Remove the baked jalapeno poppers from the oven and allow them to cool for between 5-10 minutes before serving.

  • Safe dosing with these stuffed jalapenos

    It might be tempting to dig right in when a platter of these delicious cheesy filled stuffed jalapenos are finally finished, but since they do come with a moderate dose of cannabinoids, it might be a good idea to stick with only one pepper in a serving, or two halves to start. That way, you will have time to gauge the effects, and after approximately 2 hours, if you still feel great, then what's left can be reheated in the microwave and enjoyed for a more intense buzz until you find the ideal dose for you.
