Add a pinch of chilli flakes to the cream cheese filling for a spicy kick. You may not be able to fit all the cream cheese mixture in the jalapeño halves as they can vary in size. Cover the leftover filling and keep in the fridge for up to 2 days. Use to make more poppers or stir into pasta or spoon over chilli.
Make to the end of step 2 up to 24 hours ahead. Or finish the recipe, cool and chill in airtight containers, then reheat in the oven until piping hot to serve.
Chill a white with lots of crisp, zesty citrus flavour such as a New Zealand or Aussie dry riesling.
