SIMPLE Jalapeno Mummy Poppers

SIMPLE Jalapeno Mummy Poppers

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 27 minutes
  • Yield: 20 Poppers 1x


  • 10 Jalapeño Peppers
  • 1 Cup Jalapeño flavored Cream Cheese
  • 1 Cup Cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Bacon, chopped (about 5 strips)
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 pkg. Crescent Roll dough


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Half the jalapeños lengthwise with a small sharp knife and remove the ribs and seeds.
  3. Combine the cream cheese, cheddar jack, bacon, garlic powder, and paprika in a small bowl.
  4. Fill the center of a jalapeño with the cream cheese mixture (1-2 tbsp of mix per jalapeño half, depending on the size of the pepper). Repeat with the remaining peppers.
  5. Unroll the crescent dough and pinch the seams together so you have one large sheet of dough. Cut it into 20 equal size strips.
  6. Wrap one strip of crescent dough around each jalapeño, leaving enough space to insert the eyes once they’re baked.
  7. Place the poppers on the center rack in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the poppers are golden brown.
  8. Insert two candy eyes into the poppers— make sure to do this when they’re still hot or they won’t stick.
