Mummy Jalapeno Poppers

This is not just ordinary poppers...these are scary/spooky but cute mummy jalapeno poppers! These are perfect for Halloween parties.  The cheese filling is rich in flavor with a touch of fresh herbs and garam masala. They are great as such or serve with a dip - Ghost Dip!

These are easy to make and can be made using crescent rolls or puff pastry. We love both the versions and both are buttery and delicious. This recipe uses ready to use crescent rolls. When puff pastry is used, the jalapeno poppers are very flaky. Halve the jalapenos, fill with cheese filling, and wrap with thin ropes of the crescent roll or puff pastry, bake and enjoy these cute, scary Halloween finger food. To make it more spooky, serve with Ghost Dip - a perfect match! Kids would love! These are amazing that anyone may fall in love with them immediately. This Kid-Friendly Deathly Dracula Drink would a great choice for fun filled Halloween themed party menu.

Green onions, cilantro, and mint along with garam masala add a touch of Indian flavors and the filling is extremely delicious perfect for the jalapenos. These are similar to stuffed mirchi bajji but cheese stuffed. The Rajasthani Mirchi Vada is a spicy potato stuffed indian style jalapeno poppers. Although we make our kind bajji's with jalapenos, cheese filled jalapeno poppers secured a spot. I always add a little of our masala powder to add robust flavors. This is one of our favorite way of having cream cheese jalapeno poppers.
