These Puff Pastry Jalapeño Popper Pinwheels are the best party food that will not disappoint!
You may remember these bacon cheddar pinwheels that I made last year? I thought those were the best until I made these.
I was ready to add a little spice to my game day grub. Although I was not looking for anything fried, so I went with the next best thing.
Adding these to BBQ jalapeño popper dip would be a great idea too!
I am going to be a little honest with you. I am not sure I have actually ever hada jalapeño popper. Shocking, right? Well, they have always looked good to me, but it’s not something I want to run out and buy.
What is a popper?
I did do a quick search on the internet to find out what actually goes into a jalapeño popper.
It seems this varies a lot depending on who is making it. That’s okay, I went with something simple.
Making these with only four ingredients is my kind of appetizer! Typically, I have most of the ingredients in my refrigerator at any given time, so it was super simple to make.
What goes in a popper?
Well, I just added some cream cheese, which seems to be staple ingredient. Also cheddar cheese.
Some recipes you will find sour cream and garlic, but I didn’t really feel like adding that into my recipe.
How can I make this spicier? When I cleaned my jalapeños, I took out all of the seeds.
If you want them to have more of a kick to them just chop them up without removing the seeds. This will help add a little more spice to the pinwheels.
Next time I think I will take my own advice because the first time around these were lacking in spice!
