Gluten Free Jalapeno Poppers

Gluten Free Baked Jalapeño Poppers Recipe

With fall comes cooler weather, sweaters, boots, pumpkins, and of course – football games. And there’s nothing like my Gluten Free Baked Jalapeño Poppers Recipe to get everyone in the right mood!

I will confess, I am not a huge fan of watching football on television but I am a huge fan of the food one eats while watching football on television: chicken wings, dips and chips, mini meat balls, and my favorite – jalapeño poppers!

These crispy, gluten free jalapeño poppers are baked, not fried. And be warned – they are seriously addictive.

These are spicy little peppers stuffed with melting, creamy cheese, and a crispy coating on the outside. The crispiness comes from coating them in Kinnikinnick gluten free panko bread crumbs then into the oven instead of a fryer.

I could watch football for hours if I have enough of these babies on hand to munch on!

      Hi Deb,

      Yes, generally speaking, cheese and mayo are both gluten free. Just make sure you use real cheese (if you use dairy free cheese alternative, just make sure it’s gluten free – most should be). And if you use a different flavored mayo, check the label (and don’t use mayo that has been shared with gluten-eaters or you risk cross contamination).
      Hope that helps!
