What’s you favorite appetizer? Mine would have to be jalapeno poppers.  I love how one food can be crunchy, creamy and a tad bit spicy all in one bite.

 

Wouldn’t it be fun to have jalapeno poppers not just as an appetizer, but for a main dinner dish?  Well, now you can.

 

I created these Slow-Cooker Jalapeno Popper Chicken Sandwiches  for Betty Crocker that  have combined my love for pulled chicken and the zesty flavor of jalapeno poppers into one beautiful sandwich.

  1. Corey- you have done it! My husband is going to LOVE LOVE this recipe! Can’t wait to make it!

  2. My mouth just filled with saliva reading this! I can’t wait to try it.

  3. This dish looks like something I’d like to try. But I can’t find the actual recipe. I see no ingredients list, no quantities, just photos & instructions. Am I a crazy person? Help!

  4. This would be very good served over baked potatoes.
