How to make Vegan Jalapeño Poppers

Throwing together these poppers is so simple! Start out by prepping your jalapeños. Give them a good wash then cut the tops off. Cut them lengthways and remove the seeds.

Next prepare your cream cheese mixture by adding the following ingredients to a bowl:

  • 1 package vegan cream cheese, such as Sheese Creamy Original
  • 1/4 cup shredded spicy vegan cheese, such as Mexicana Spicy Vegan Block
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, optional
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Give your cream cheese mixture a good mix then start stuffing the jalapeños. Once all of the jalapeños are loaded with creamy goodness top them off with gluten-free breadcrumbs. Bake in the oven at 400° for about 20 – 23 minutes. The breadcrumbs will begin to look golden brown. Before removing to serve broil at 500° for 2 additional minutes to get the perfect crispy tops!
