Bacon Jalapeno Popper Puffs
If you love bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers, you'll love these light bacon jalapeno popper puffs. Plus they're so much easier to make!
I have made numerous Chef John recipes that turned out to be fantastic. Unfortunately this was the one I was unhappy with. The flavor of the poppers themselves were good.

I added some extra seasoning of my own, but I think the poppers are fine without the effort of the dip. I was frustrated with the number of poppers this made.

Mini phyllo cups filled with a creamy, cheesy jalapeno filling are a more sophisticated version of the jalapeno popper.
Jalapeno peppers are stuffed with a blend of cream cheese and Cheddar cheese in this crowd-pleasing, bacon-wrapped appetizer.
