This snack is on fire. As team rivalries heat up, make sure your game-day spread keeps pace.
This spicy snack stacks all the flavor of Buffalo wings into a cheesy jalapeño pepper filling.
10 fresh jalapeño peppers
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
Halve the jalapeño peppers lengthwise and remove stems, seeds and membranes with a spoon. (Be sure to wash your hands after handling the peppers. Or, if you're particularly sensitive, wear latex or plastic gloves or slip your hand into a resealable plastic bag and wear it like a glove.)
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, shredded chicken and hot sauce. Spoon the mixture into the jalapeño halves and place on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle each half with cheese. (If you opt for bacon, cut the slices into thirds and then wrap each pepper with 1/3 slice. You can either secure the bacon with a toothpick or make sure the seam is on the bottom of the pepper.)
Place the peppers, filling side up, on the baking sheet and bake until the top is golden and bubbly - about 20 minutes. (If you opt for tortilla chips, sprinkle crumbs from the bottom of the bag on the top of each popper for some crunch.)
