Bacon-Wrapped Lime-Chipotle Chicken Stuffed with Jalapeno Poppers

jalapeno poppers

Remember life before the Jalapeno Popper? I have memories of the first time I saw it on a menu; I think I may have teared up a bit. Jalapenos…stuffed with cream cheese? Then dipped into a light batter and fried? For the very first time, life made sense.

Clearly I wasn’t the only foodie who felt this way. Jalapeno Popper recipes turned up everywhere – from breaded then baked or fried, wrapped in bacon or stuffed with any number of cheese mixtures, jalapeno poppers arrived on the scene and stayed for good.

Taking it to the next level wasn’t easy. I’ve tried many different variations and different fillings, all of which were good and some even great. But I needed a version that would not only make a great appetizer but also a meal. Welcome to my very own jalapeno popper recipe that is pretty perfect, if I do say so myself ;-)

    Looks like another winner! Looks and sounds delicious…. Keeping fingers crossed for you in the contest! Not sure if Mama's is available here in Hawaii. Have never seen it in the stores…so I better win so that I can try it!!

    Oh my!!! I think I shall request some Saucy Hot Mama's Lime-Chipotle Marinade for my birthday AND Christmas! And I bet my 13 yo son would be the one to make sure it happened!!

    Oh my goodness… I love bacon wrapped stuffed jalapenos, but adding lime-chipotle chicken just rocks it to another level. I hope, hope hope I win the sauce. I cannot wait to try these.

    Oh man that looks awesome!! I have to try this recipe! I'm a huge lover of chicken, and an equal lover of cream cheese squished into Jalapeno's so, both of them in one recipe spells…..'Genius'

    This looks and sounds totally delicious! I hope you win with it, it looks like a winner to me. It sounds easy to do too. I have to try it.

    You're killing me over here, Kristy! Struggling to cook due to a sprained wrist, have been surviving on whatever I can rustle up without the aid of my pinch grip or the ability to twist (read: we've done ALL the local drive-through food) and you post this!!

    A good friend would either:

    1. Only post recipes for gruel until I have recovered, or

    2. Send some of these over right away!!!!

    I swear I can already taste their succulent goodness, although I find licking the screen is not useful.

    Seriously, I'm sure you'll be a strong contender and I can't wait to try this recipe once I'm healed (or once you send the FedEx man over with a batch).

    If you’ve never tried dipping poppers in grape jelly, you should make a batch of standard poppers and try it. It’s amazing!

    I made this last night with your homemade marinade! I skipped the bacon because I don’t eat it, and used goat cheese instead of Cream cheese. It was FABULOUS! I will make this again. Thankyou!

    The ingredient list in your Jalapeno Popper does have me wanting to make some-yum! The picture does tell the story about two people having an awesome brunch-wish I had been there. This recipe has been saved-thanks!
