Cornbread Jalapeno Poppers

Want a meatless appetizer idea for the Super Bowl or your next get-together? How's this-Cornbread Jalapeno Poppers, simply bake cornbread in jalapenos! Whole corn gives it a little bite and while the cheese is great, I feel it's optional. The test batch turned into my dinner... just call me Earl:@)
My jalapenos were cleaned well and this was a very mild, tasty finger food.
If you like things hotter, just remove the seeds but leave the membranes in the peppers.

Cornbread Jalapeno Poppers-from Quick'N Easy Recipes
12 medium/large jalapenos
1 box corn bread mix-plus ingredients on box
1 1/2 C shredded cheddar-1 C for batter, 1/2 C to sprinkle on top
1 C corn-fresh, frozen and thawed or canned and drained well
  1. Slice each jalapeno lengthwise and clean out the seeds and membrane-a melon baller works great.
  2. Mix cornbread per package directions.
  3. Stir in corn and 1 cup of cheddar.
  4. Fill each jalapeno with batter-just up to the top of the pepper-don't over fill. Place on baking sheet or dish-I covered my baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up.
  5. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar.
  6. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cornbread is firm and cooked through. 
  7. Let cool a bit and enjoy!
  • If they won't lay flat (want to roll to one side so the batter drips out) lean them against the side of the baking sheet or each other.
  • I did use a from scratch cornbread recipe, and suggest that you don't cut back on the salt. You might even want to give them a light sprinkle of kosher salt once out of the oven too.
  • If you have enough corn bread mix leftover that you're worried about wasting it, simply pour into a greased ramekin or cupcake pan and make a muffin or two for breakfast.

Have a happy day:@)


  1. These would go SO WELL with the red beans and rice we're having tonight! They remind me of corn dogs! :D

  2. WOW and Yipppeee...we love both cornbread and jalapenos. What a super idea. Can't wait to make them...better give them a try before the super bowl. I'm with Jill...they'd be great with a pot of red beans! Thanks!!!

  3. Okay, I'm drooling! These look AMAZING!


  4. If there is one thing Colorado has a lot of in its supermarkets, it is jalapeno peppers! I will have to try this yummy recipe very soon!

  5. Oh, don't think I could eat these. ;-) I do like little bits of jalapenos in cornbread, but this would be a little much for my taste buds. '-)

  6. My friend Paula would love these! I made your buffalo chicken mini muffins last evening and my family LOVED them. They will be requesting them FOREVER and EVER. LOL

  7. I think we'll just head on over to your place Sunday!!


  8. You are never going to win me to Jalapenos! But I can see me making something like this for family coming over!

  9. Oh my goodness - never even thought of cornbread in those - looks delish!

  10. These poppers look delicious, Lynn. I love the idea of filling them with cornbread. Perfect game day food.

  11. These look so good, my mouth is watering! Looking forward to being able to eat 'real' food like this again soon! xo

  12. We would LOVE these here!
    Must make some with a pot of chili this weekend!

  13. Where have I been??!
    The strawberry cake looks awesome, as does the crochet post.
    These poppers are beautiful!

  14. This would be perfect for the Super Bowl party we're attending, but I have to make a dessert for it! I like these poppers much better than wings and will be trying it for our next get-together. Thanks!

  15. Two of my favorite things in the same recipe! I need to try these sweet little babies at our next party! Thanks for sharing something really new and different for me to try!

  16. Cornbread in a cute jalapeño package makes for a great appetizer (or a a meal!!). You share the best, most fun food, Lynn!

  17. Those look SO good. Reminds me of one of our local BBQ restaurants, where one of their sides is Jalapeno creamed corn.
    Looks like the "eats" for Super Bowl Sunday will be great at your house.

  18. These look mouthwatering. I will make these beauties for my sons Super Bowl party. Another great stuffed jalapeno recipe.

  19. I bet your kitchen smelled terrific! A great combination.

  20. I would never in a zillion years have thought to do this, and I guarantee it would be the hit of any get together. What a perfect idea. I'm pinning!

  21. Hubby would love this!! He loves jalapeño, or I would say, ALL hot peppers, lol..Great recipe, thanks for sharing my friend. Have a good rest of the week.

  22. What a fabulous idea. I adore jalapenos and I was just reading that eating one a day helps you up your metabolism. I have been adding a half teaspoon of red pepper flakes (another option) and I haven't even felt cold and it has been cold here so that is a nice winter solution to constantly freezing. I want to try these and serve them with a side of whipped cream cheese - ooh baby, here I come!

  23. Hi Lynnie! Oh, these look and sound so good. I love the cornbread topping. Now I've learned something. I thought if you took the seeds out that would take care of the hot. Didn't realize it was the membrane.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  24. OMG, I would die...D. I. E. die!!! LOL You must have a cast iron stomach, Lynn. You love hot stuff!!!

    I know Sunday is going to be a fun day at your house. DH asked if I wanted to ask some folks over & I said 'no way'...I want to watch, not be stuck in the kitchen.

    I thought of you again this morning when I made your eggs with a splash of water. Best tip I've ever gotten on the internet. Thanks again for that.

    Warm Hugs,

  25. I know my family would love these as they have 3 biggies: cheese, cornbread and jalapenos! But I would be eating just the filling. Just what I need--more carbs. I just saw your comment pop into my box. It's 5:20 am here and the winds are wicked. Something huge just fell down outside but we won't be able to see until morning. So many trees down this winter!!! I hope the weather is better there. Linda

  26. What a great pictures. Those look fantastic!

  27. Hoooooly Cow...these sound AWESOME !

  28. Best idea ever. Love it. Thanks for sharing :)

  29. Yum!!! These look wonderful. I love jalepeno poppers, I love jalepeno anything. Will have to try these ;-P Thanks for sharing your recipe. Pinning!

  30. A perfect pairing along side a little chili for the Super Bowl!

  31. These look great, a twist on traditional poppers, must try this! Yum!

  32. What a great idea, Lynn, we will love these. Your recipe is awesome and thank you so much for sharing it with Full Plate Thursday.
    Have a great weekend and come back soon!
