Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner, and it’s time to start planning your party. Snacks are the star of the show, and this recipe for mini jalapeno popper egg rolls from Spend With Pennies has everything you need to impress your guests when the big game rolls around.
The crispy, creamy apps provide a little bit spicy heat, and they’re sure to be the type of snack that makes it impossible to have just one.
These popper egg rolls take less than 10 minutes from prep to ready-to-pop, so they’re perfect for whipping up at the last minute. The ingredient list is simple, too, and includes cream cheese, cheddar cheese, canned jalapeno peppers, garlic powder, green onions, wonton wrappers and vegetable oil.
The filling will be super-hot when these bite-size snacks are done frying, so be sure to let them cool for about five minutes before digging in. These poppers sound delicious all on their own, but I could also see them pairing perfectly with ranch dressing or a spicy mayo dip.

If you’re looking to cut down on extra fat and calories, some people indicated in the comments that they have made them in an air fryer — or baked them in the oven — for a savory treat without all the grease.
Jalapeno popper dogs are another way to incorporate jalapenos into a hot and spicy appetizer. The type of cheese you use in this recipe is up to you — American, cheddar or pepper jack would all work well.
You can cook these on the grill for that perfectly charred look, but if it’s a bit too cold to venture outside in your neck of the woods, an indoor electric grill will do the job.
