These Mild Baked Jalapeño Poppers are flavorful and a really easy appetizer to make. Your guests will also appreciate that they are not fried but every bit as delicious!
This recipe makes 24 poppers. I recently made them for a party and they were gone after just a few minutes. They’re made with four simple ingredients and bake up crispy on top and gooey in the middle after about 20-minutes in the oven.
The jalapeños in this Mild Baked Jalapeño Poppers recipe are mild! Yes, mild but with all the flavor so that all of your guests can enjoy them.
The secret to reducing the heat in the peppers is to boil the jalapeño halves in a large stockpot of water for about 10-minutes. I ran across this tip in the comments for another hot pepper recipe and it works perfectly every time! The heat in the peppers boils off leaving a mild-tasting jalapeño pepper.
The best thing about these appetizers is that you can make them ahead and pop in the oven just before guests arrive. Serve them warm and make extra, they go fast!
