We love having friends over for football, baseball, fight night…seriously all the time. These Jalapeno Popper Chicken Wings make a pretty regular appearance at our parties and they are always devoured as soon as the platter hits the table. They are creamy and spicy and have so much flavor that they are one of my most requested chicken wing recipes.
Instead of dragging out the old fryer or wasting all that oil, try my Tried N True method for crispy BAKED WINGS. No one will know that you didn’t fry them.
These are too terribly spicy for us, but if you are worried about the heat level make sure to remove all the seeds and veins of the jalapenos and add only half of the jalepenos at first. Just make sure you add enough to taste the fresh jalapeno flavor…because what’s a jalapeno popper with the jalapeno!?!?!?
- 2 1/2 lbs cooked chicken wings , baked or fried
- 4 slices of bacon, cut in small chunks
- 1 tbls all-purpose flour
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup milk
- 6 oz cream cheese
- 3 jalapenos, halved, seeded, minced
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- salt & pepper
- While the wings are baking, add bacon to a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat and cook until almost crispy. When bacon is almost crispy, add garlic, jalapeno, and flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes, or until the roux has slightly browned.
- Reduce temperature to low and stir in milk, cream cheese, cumin, paprika, & cayenne. Whisk and turn the heat back up to medium. Stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
- When wings are cooked, toss in the prepared sauce and enjoy!
- Gluten/Dairy Free Option: I successfully made these using dairy free alternatives and a gluten free AP flour. It works great!
