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.

This is great - I did add seasoning to my cream cheese - ranch powder or sometimes just garlic/onion powder and a lil cayenne - Thank for sharing - yummy

In all honesty I haven't tried this recipe but I make one of my own design. I air fry 1 or 2 strips of bacon crispy. Chop it up, cut off a little slice & de-seed 4 or 5 jalapenos, mix in shredded cheddar or Colby or a mix of what I have on hand to about 4 oz of cream cheese and add the bacon. Put in pre heated AF @ 400 for about 5 minutes. I wasn't a fan of wrapping it in bacon because you'd take a bite and the bacon would all unravel, however I LOVE bacon with them so I put it inside with the filling. I will try your 370 temp for 6 to 8 minutes though. Thanks for sharing
