  • 4 jalapenos, halved (the long way) and deseeded
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp creole seasoning
  • A dash of salt
  • A dash of pepper
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • 6 ounces cooked chicken breast, shredded or chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella/cheddar cheese blend


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Soften the cream cheese in microwave for 30 seconds. Mix cream cheese and spices together in a medium sized bowl. Add in shredded chicken and hot sauce.
  • Scoop cream cheese mixture into jalapeños halves. Place all 8 halves on a nonstick cookie sheet or in a cast iron skillet. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until the jalapeños are tender and the cheese is melted. If you want the cheese a little crispy, put under the broiler for a few minutes.
  • Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes and then serve.
