Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Poppers

 How about some spicy appetizers to serve at your next party?  I actually served these as a main course for my meal, along with a salad.  If you don't mind some heat, I think you'll love these. 

Yield: 40 halves

Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Poppers

Try these for when you want a spicy appetizer, or do as I did, and serve them as a meal!


20 jalapenos (cut in half)
1 and 1/2 cup cooked,  shredded chicken (I used chicken thighs, but use a rotisserie, or whatever you have)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup smoked cheddar (I used a Mexican blend of cheese and a few drops of liquid smoke)
1/2 cup buffalo hot sauce (I used Frank's)
2 tablespoons ranch dressing
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles ( I omitted because I didn't have any)


Slice the jalapenos lengthwise, removing the seeds and membranes.  I wore plastic gloves!  Place the jalapenos on a baking sheet.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the filling, except the blue cheese.
Add 1 tablespoon of the filling to each jalapeno half, and then top with the blue cheese.
At this point, you can refrigerate them. 
When ready to bake, preheat your grill, and when ready to cook, place the jalapenos on the indirect heat side of the grill.
Cook the jalapenos for 8-10 minutes.

This sweet granddaughter, Ella, turned 8 years old last week! 

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:


  1. Ella is a cutie...another great smile. This is one I’ll let those who love heat enjoy. I like the taste, but the heat is too much for me. 🤯

  2. Your Buffalo Chickekn Jalapeno Poppers sound wonderful Kitty and perfect for tailgating season! Sweet Ella is adorable. ♥

  3. Love me some poppers Kitty! The addition of smoked cheese sounds really good too:@)

  4. I love spicy foods. Those Poppers look mighty delicious. Your Ella is very sweet....happy birthday to Ella!

  5. That sounds soooo good. Happy Birthday to your granddaughter.

  6. These sound really good if you like spicy food. I wonder if you could use a regular pepper for this instead?? Thanks for this appetizer or dinner idea.

  7. Happy belated birthday to Ella!

    Sometimes I enjoy appetizers as the main course. I don't each much spicy food, but would love to try your poppers with a giant glass of water!

  8. Happy belated Birthday to Ella! She is such a beautiful young lady.

    Your poppers look amazing, my friend! I have been craving jalapeno poppers and your buffalo chicken ones would be just the thing to satisfy my craving :) Thanks for the tasty recipe.

    Love and hugs to you!

  9. Happy Birthday to Ella, such a cutie! Not a fan of peppers or anything hot, but subtract 3 things and it would be great for stuffed zucchini. 😀
    Have a great week!

  10. I love spicy foods even if Mr. P. doesn't, and I bet my girls would love these too. Pinned! Happy Birthday to that little 8 yr old cutie!

  11. Kitty, these look so delicious! I could happily eat this for a meal like you. Little Ella is adorable and I love her name. Give her a birthday hug for me :)

  12. We love pepper poppers, but I've never had them with chicken. They sound delicious. I can't take too much heat, but some members of my family love it! Happy Birthday to sweet Ella.

  13. I will have to save this recipe for my husband as he loves hot and spicy food! Happy birthday to Ella!!!


  14. These look very tasty and I don't mind a little bit of heat. Happy Birthday to Ella! Hugs!

  15. Jalapeno poppers one of my favourites, my husband used to love them but they don't much agree with him anymore so I don't make them as often as I used to. Now those made with chicken sound a lot healthier than with the bacon wrapped poppers, I must give yours or try Kitty.
    I enjoy them as a meal too. :}
    Birthday wishes for Ella, such a pretty girl.

  16. Kitty, oh be still my heart! I love anything spicy but especially hot peppers any which way I can get them. My husband not so much. Sweet picture of Ella. ♥

  17. Oh my hubby would go wild over these! Pinning to surprise him one day soon. Thanks for sharing the sweet picture of Ella precious! Hugs to you dear. XO

  18. Those appetizers look so pretty and I bet they are delicious. I wish I could eat those but I can't do spicy.
    Pretty birthday girl.

  19. I think I will miss some of these appetizers, but ready to try different food in Italy. Love seeing the grands on their birthdays. Ciao! ♥

  20. I love appetizers for dinner! Great idea, and the buffalo sauce is a unique addition! Does Ella like to cook like Cissy? Cutie pie!

  21. Happy Birthday to your little cutie! My oldest son just had a birthday too. Actually, we've had four birthdays this month; busy, busy!
    Until I had my gallbladder out, the hotter the better when it came to food! Your poppers look sooo good! I would have to tame them down a bit though as spicy food doesn't always agree with me now. Pity! Everyone feels sorry for me because they know how much I always enjoyed it. Such is life! We have to make the best of it, don't we? Hugs to you, my friend!

  22. Oh, how adorable she is! And, those poppers look wonderful! God bless you, sweet friend. :)

  23. Happy belated Birthday to your adorable Grand!She is a cutie,beautiful princess!Your recipe looks great.Hugs!

  24. Kitty, your grands are so sweet! And those poppers sound wonnnnderful! I am going to make them very soon.

  26. I know I would love these! I make stuffed jalapenos and we love them. but the buffalo chicken sound delish! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Happy Birthday to your granddaughter. Our Saydee turned 9 on Friday.
