These jalapeño cheese bombs are insanely delicious! With only five ingredients these cream cheese appetizers couldn’t be easier. Plus, they have bacon!
Jalapeño Cheese Bombs
I’m low-key obsessed with anything wrapped in dough.
Ground beef empanadas called pastelillos are my favorite, but it can be anything and I’ll devour it!
I especially love to take two of my favorite foods and put them together.
You should try it sometime – you’ll be amazed at the results!
One of my favorite foods are jalapeño poppers. I’ve played around with the flavors before and came up with jalapeño cream cheese dip.
The filling for these jalapeño cheese bombs are basically the same, but I’ve stuffed it into biscuit dough like a cheese bomb (another one of my favorite foods).
The filling has cream cheese, pickled jalapeños, cheddar cheese and bacon!
Bacon makes everything better.
How to Make Cheese Bombs
These are so simple to put together. All you do is mix the filling ingredients together.
You can even do this in advance and put it in the fridge until you’re ready to bake.
Next, take a can of biscuits and flatten each one. I used large biscuits that had 8 in a tube, but the size is flexible.
You can use a rolling pin to flatten the biscuits, but I just pressed them with my hands.
Put a dollop (I used a medium cookie scoop) of the popper mixture in the center of each biscuit and pinch the ends to seal.
The bombs are done when they’re golden brown and firm to the touch (you don’t want raw dough inside!).
I brushed these appetizers with butter for shine and garnished with cilantro when they came out of the oven, but they’re ready to eat as is.
My husband went crazy for these jalapeño cheese bombs and begged me to make them for him weekly!
I told him that’s too much and as a result I only got to eat one and he scarfed down the rest!
