Jalapeno Popper Pepper Jacks - everyone's favorite party appetizer stuffed into a delightfully ghoulish Pepper Jack O Lantern... perfect for kids of ALL ages!
This Is Halloween, This Is Halloween! Halloween Halloween, This Is Halloween!
Long time readers know my favorite time of year is autumn - I love what October smells like - and that I love Halloween. I tend to get creative with the foods this time of year.
The Halloweenies in this house are looking forward to their costumes:
Remember Basil's costumes? This is Rosemary's first Halloween with us - photos of her costumes coming soon...
You may also remember my pepper jacks - carrot ginger quinoa pepper jacks and the year before that, pizza polenta pepper jacks. They won an award, they caught the eye of Pee Wee Herman and went viral, they are dinner year round in this house. Yep, carved jack o lanterns included.
I make the carrot quinoa ginger jacks a lot, that flavor combination is one of our favorites. This cheesy jalapeno flavor has already been made twice, and will become a regular thing too - I am really excited about this one.
Taking the idea and flavor from a [plant based] jalapeno popper, these have the mild spice from jalapenos, the crumbly topping reminiscent of a batter coating, and a cheesy sauce. Oh, the cheesy sauce.
I finally made a chickpea cheese, and while I still love my cashews, this one is good.
Smooth, savory, cheesy.
