Jalapeno poppers are one of my favorite foods.  They’re a bit on the spicy side – but with enough creamy goodness to it to balance out the heat, and the end result is popable snackable perfection.

I love making them from scratch – and have the perfect bacon wrapped version of them right here on the blog.  The only thing I don’t like is they’re a bit time consuming…. and patience isn’t exactly my strong suit.

When a craving hits, I want to be able to enjoy what I want in record time.  Like when I want dessert but just don’t want to wait for a cake to bake – so I end up grabbing a spoon and opening up a tub of store-bought frosting.  The same principal applies to all my non-sweet cravings too.

So, my impatient side totally is in foodie love with these Jalapeno Popper Bites.  They literally taste just like a jalapeno popper without the work (and patience) required!
