Jalapeno Poppers

  • 1 can crescent roll dough
  • 6-8 jalapenos
  • 8-10 slices of bacon, cooked until crisp, then crumbled
  • 6 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 4 ounce block of cheddar cheese shredded
  • ½ bag frozen corn
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • Candy eyeballs for decoration

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon milk or water


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a bowl mix together the softened cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, corn, and seasonings.
  • Wash and slice your jalapenos lengthwise, including the stem (leave stem on). 
  • Using a spoon, scoop/scrape out the seeds and membranes of each jalapeno. Be careful not to scoop too high up on the stem or it will fall off. 
  • Fill each jalapeno half with as much filling as possible, packing it tightly and mounding it over the top.
  • Unroll your crescent rolls and lay flat on a cutting board. If there are any large gaps in the rolls you can pinch together the seams. Using a knife or pizza cutter, slice the short end of the dough rectangle into ¼" strips.
  • Wrap each jalapeno popper like a mummy leaving a little open area to place the eyeballs. You can use 1-3 strips for each popper. 
  • Once wrapped, place onto a lightly greased baking sheet at least 2" apart and decorate with candy eyes.
  • In a small bowl mix together an egg and a tablespoon of milk or water to create an egg wash.
  • Brush the tops of each mummy lightly with the egg wash. 
  • Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top. 


  • For extra heat use pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. 
  • Serve with ranch for those who find jalapenos a little spicy, although the crescent roll dough and cream cheese filling really help to tame down the spice. 
  • Store in the fridge for 4 days and reheat in a 325 degree F oven for 5-10 minutes before serving.
