Sweet & Spicy Vegan Jalepeño Poppers

Posted on

Sweet and Spicy Jalapeño Poppers because ahead of a holiday weekend of hosting, I realized EVERYBODY needs more fun ideas for easy appetizers. Fresh jalapeños are sliced in half and filled with a rich vegan cheese filling and some fresh pineapple. Savory, spicy and sweet… what more could you ask for?!  I’ll be honest I’m not a huge fan of vegan cheeses but am loving this @kitehill option made from almond milk. With just a few basic ingredients (that you probably always have on hand), you too can whip up this delicious appetizer that family and friends will both love!

Sweet and Spicy Jalapeño Poppers because ahead of a holiday weekend of hosting, I realized EVERYBODY needs more fun ideas for easy appetizers. Fresh jalapeños are sliced in half and filled with a rich vegan cheese filling and some fresh pineapple. Savory, spicy and sweet… what more could you ask for?!  I’ll be honest I’m not a huge fan of vegan cheeses but am loving this @kitehill option made from almond milk. With just a few basic ingredients (that you probably always have on hand), you too can whip up this delicious appetizer that family and friends will both love! 

Ingredients
  

  • 10 jalapeños 2-3 inches in size
  • 1/4 of a pineapple diced
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 green onion sliced
  • 5 oz Kite Hill Everything flavored Dairy-Free Cream Cheese
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to broil.
  • Slice your jalapeños in half lengthwise. Be careful when handling the jalapeños, I used gloves. Use your gloved finger or a spoon to carefully remove the seeds and the rind from each half. Wash and pat dry. Set aside.
  • Chop the pineapple into small pieces and heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the pineapple until soft and golden brown. Remove from heat.
  • Prepare the filling by adding the cream cheese to a bowl. Once the pineapple has cooled slightly, mince it into small chunks. Add the minced pineapple to the cream cheese and a pinch of salt.
  • Chop 1 green onion and add to the mixture, stirring well to combine.
  • On a baking sheet, arrange cleaned jalapeño halves and using a spoon, carefully divide the cheese mixture evenly into all of the jalapeños.
  • Broil for 4-5 minutes or until crispy and golden brown on the edges.
