Fresh Hot Jalapeños Poppers are little bites of BIG flavor.

Last Sunday we hosted a football party, which was sort of like a mini Super Bowl Party! I can’t wait to share more yummy recipes with you–BIG-hit recipes–for the Super Bowl coming up on February 3rd. Also, stay tuned for a $100 Coca Cola prize pack giveaway next week on RE!

My friend Natalie is a bigger-than-life person (personality, upbeat, uplifting, encouraging), and I sort of look up to her as my mentor for football food.

She and her husband are the ones that usually host the FB parties, so they are the experts, in my mind. She has all the best recipes memorized – and knows what all the guys like. (Remember, we’re a soccer family?) :)

Like this recipe I’m sharing today. Natalie rattled off the recipe so quickly, there’s no way I could remember it, so I resorted to a quick email from her for the Fresh Hot Poppers.

They are so delicious, I guarantee they will get eaten quickly.

I can’t wait to try them for the real Super Bowl party, coming up soon!

There’s one thing to remember with this recipe: Jalapeños can be unpredictable in their hotness, so watch out!

Oh, and that this recipe is awesome served either hot or cold! Love that.

Will you be hosting a Super Bowl Party this year?
