We LOVE Jalapeno Poppers here at Real Housemoms. Maybe it’s being in Arizona but we just can’t get enough of them. The flavor combination of jalapeno and bacon is just so darn good!
Stacey first introduced me to Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers the first time we were over to her house and I knew we were going to be great friends. I’ve made them for all of my family and friends and they LOVE them! I wanted to come up with a new way to have them so I thought why not add chicken? It was fantastic and they went fast.
