These Jalapeno Poppers in Air fryer are super easy to make and are stuffed with pepperoni and cheese sticks which are topped with some panko bread crumbs for that added crunch.
I used to buy my Jalapeno Poppers from frozen however those days are long gone. They are fresher tasting and cheaper to make from scratch.
And the thing is they take less than 5 mins to prepare and 5 minutes to cook.
Making this a true 10 minutes appetizer. My small air fryer makes 4 pieces, which is just about the right amount for one or 2 people to snack on.
If you want to make a larger batch, simply use a larger air fryer.
HOW LONG TO COOK JALAPENO POPPERS IN AIR FRYER
My 2 quart Air Fryer cooks this appetizer in 5 minutes! Check your air fryer time as each one cooks them a little differently.
HOW TO MAKE JALAPENO POPPERS
You will need 4 simple ingredients
- Cheddar Cheese (I used cheese sticks)
- Pepperoni ( I used slices and diced them)
- Panko Bread Crumbs
- Jalapeno Peppers, to stuff
Then slice 2 Jalapeno Peppers in half and cleaned out
Prepare, 2 Cheddar Cheese Sticks
Dice 50 grams of pepperoni finely
Top with 2 tbsp Panko Bread Crumbs
You can use shredded cheddar cheese also, but I much prefer the sticks as they stuff these little peppers perfectly and the cheese does not leave the pepper as much as it would with shredded cheese.
Which tends to fall all over the grills. Also, you can stuff them with shredded chicken, ground beef etc if you prefer.
Just make sure you are either using pre-cooked meat and or if your using raw be sure to cook them longer.
