It’s incredibly rare for me to find something easy to make that is a hit every time I make it. I’m always so self conscious about my mediocre cooking and my countless failed Pinterest attempts when it comes to parties, potlucks or dinner hosting. Friends, you’ve all experienced this first-hand, so you know what I mean. Heck, most of the time I have to Google how to boil and egg!!! (Okay I’m not really that bad….I just always forget the perfect timing). So when a friend of mine made me the most amazingly easy and delicious Jalapeño Poppers I knew it was something I could make and I WAS RIGHT!! They’re super easy and oh so delicious. And certainly a crowd pleaser at any event I’ve ever brought them to.
The original recipe comes from the blog Spend With Pennies, but my best friend Jessica put her own little twist on them which I think is even better; replace the ‘egg roll wrappers’ for ‘spring roll wrappers’. I think the texture is much better! You can also bake them rather than fry them for a bit of a healthier option. Spring roll wrappers are quite tricky to work with though, so you need to make sure you read all instructions and have everything prepared and on-hand before you open the package and start wrapping. Keep them moist with a wet paper towel on top and keep a small bowl of water on hand to keep your finger tips wet too. Then roll away!
A few friends of mine think that the spice level is a bit too high, so you can adjust the amount of pickled Jalapeños accordingly. Yet either way they are a total hit with dinner party crowds! What are your favourite recipes?
