16 oz whipped cream cheese

5 oz goat cheese with herbs

2 Tbs fresh chives, finely chopped

1/2 lb fresh prosciutto, thinly sliced


In a small bowl mix and set aside all ingredients below,

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup Sriracha

1 Tbs soy sauce


In a medium sized bowl, mix cream cheese, goat cheese and chives together then set aside.

Spray a sheet pan with coconut oil then line with parchment paper. Spray again with coconut oil on top of the parchment paper and set aside.

Clean jalapeños, cut in half, remove all seeds and membrane as shown in the picture above and set aside.

Building the Poppers:


Evenly fill each jalapeno with the cheese mixture, wrap with prosciutto and bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Glaze with the sriracha & honey glaze and bake for another 10-15 minutes until crispy and bubbly.

Remove from oven, let cool to set for a few minutes and serve.


From my home to yours, enjoy!
