It’s finally fall and that means cooler weather, pumpkin-flavored everything and…football! Of course, no football watch party goes without an array of snacks and finger foods to keep guests full and happy. Read on for a winning appetizer idea for your next shingdig.
Savory and spicy flavors are perfect features for a great football party menu and the classic flavors in jalapeno poppers will surely delight everyone. Spicy jalapenos, cooling cream cheese, and smoky bacon are a perfect trio of flavors, but throw on some shrimp, sweet and savory barbecue sauce and wrap it all in a flaky, buttery pastry and you’ll never want your poppers any other way again.
For these BBQ shrimp and bacon jalapeno popper bites, halve some jalapenos and scrape out the ribs and seeds with a spoon to ensure that they’re not overly spicy. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese, top with a shrimp, and baste them with Stubb’s Spicy Bar-B-Q Sauce (or your favorite Stubb’s sauce). Wrap these filled jalapeno halves with a piece of refrigerated crescent roll dough and bake to perfection.
These revamped jalapeno poppers are a zesty addition to your football fare menu and are sure to be requested for again for the next game day get-together.
