Jalapeno Poppers with Fool's Paradise Hot Sauce

Serves 5


  • 12 large jalapeño peppers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tbs Fools Paradise hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ⅓ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Optional garnish
  • Crushed barbecue potato chips
  • Green onions
  • Cilantro
  • Bacon Bits 


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Cut off one-third of each pepper lengthwise. Use a small spoon to scoop out the seeds and membranes from each pepper, and discard those pieces.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, ¼ cup chopped cilantro, garlic powder, onion powder, Fools Paradise hot sauce and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Stuff the peppers with the cream cheese mixture. Top each of the peppers with a small mound of cheddar cheese lengthwise.
  4. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling and starting to turn golden.
  5. Transfer the jalapeño poppers to a large serving dish and top each pepper with the garnish of your choice. Drizzle with more fools to spice it up!
