How do i make jalapeno poppers in air fryer
Step 1. Pick some large bright colored jalapenos, that are also about same size
Step 2. If you prefer your jalapeno poppers on a spicy side, leave as many seeds as you want. I prefer to remove them all
Step 3. Fill them all up with soften cream cheese. You can add freshly chopped parsley or cilantro in it too.
Step 4. Use thin cut bacon, it will make it easier to wrap. Also use toothpicks to make sure that bacon will stay at its place.
