Jalapeño Poppers with Prosciutto, Corn and Goat Cheese

Stuffing the Jalapeño Poppers

To make the filling for the poppers, you will need:

  • Goat cheese. Plain, herbed or honey flavored all work! My personal fave is honey goat cheese. Yum!
  • Frozen corn. This recipe call for frozen, but if you want to use fresh- go for it!
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper, always.
  • A little butter.
  • A couple scallions, thinly sliced.

All you need to do to make the filling is briefly warm the corn in some melted butter, and season it with salt and pepper. Mix it up with the goat cheese and thinly sliced scallions, and bam- filling is ready!

Wrapping the Poppers

Prior to filling and wrapping the poppers, you’ll roast the jalapeños under your oven’s broiler for about 10 minutes. This gives the peppers great flavor and texture.

Once the peppers are roasted/broiled, you’ll (gently) fill each with the corn/goat cheese filling, and wrap each pepper with a half a slice of prosciutto. Start at the top and wrap to the opposite end, tucking the prosciutto under the jalapeños. No needs to secure! As the prosciutto cooks, it will adhere to the peppers!

How long do you cook jalapeño poppers?

These jalapeño poppers cook up quickly once they are roasted and stuffed. Just bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes until the cheese is warmed through and the prosciutto is nice and crisp!

Once the poppers are baked, allow them to rest and cool for about 5 minutes before serving!
