This recipe for Jalapeno Poppers – cream cheese, cheddar and feta stuffed jalapeno bites will take you on a fun adventure of an all-time favorite bar food, from comfort of your own home! 

Gluten free, not fried but baked Jalapeno Poppers are a must try for any jalapeno and cheese lover! This cheesy Mexican staple can be a show-stopper at any party! I bet! So, I thought, with Oscar Academy Award night approaching this Sunday.. these will make a perfect addition to appetizer platter.  Don't you think?

I think so because not just Jalapeno Poppers are easy to put together, these are mini-little flavor BOMBs! 

You know, flavor-is-the-king!

No one has to know, you worked just 20-25 minutes to put a platter of no-mess and delicious Jalapeno Bites together which is looking as pretty and hot like Oscar guests ;) 

Honestly, these days, I'm obsessed with Jalapeno Poppers. When I saw super fresh Jalapenos in my grocery store last weekend... I felt these has to be on blog! 

Do you remember the Jalapeno Popper Pretzel Bites...
