Three Cheese Jalapeños Poppers

Fun and tasty Three Cheese Jalapeño Poppers that are the trifecta of delicious flavor: spicy jalapeño, creamy cheese, and a sweet drizzle on top!

Prep: 15 minsCook: 20 minsTotal: 35 mins
Servings: 24 1x


  • 912 jalapeños
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic reduction (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Cut your jalapeños in half and remove the seeds. If you have some type of plastic gloves, definitely use them to remove the seeds. I used plastic baggies and they worked great!
  3. Wash the jalapeños and pat them dry.
  4. Toss the jalapeños in a large bowl with melted coconut oil until well coated.
  5. Then, lay them on a lined baking sheet with the inside-side up.
  6. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and shredded cheddar and mix until combined and smooth.
  7. Use a spatula to fill the insides of the jalapeños with cream cheese mixture.
  8. Sprinkle the Parmesan on top of each jalapeño.
  9. Bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until softened and browned. I broiled mine for an additional 2 minutes.
  10. Finally, quickly drizzle balsamic reduction on each jalapeño and serve them warm!
