A word of caution from How To This and That: When working with jalapenos, it’s important to be careful about the oils inside, which can cause painful burning if they get under your nails or in your eyes. Some people choose to wear gloves when cooking with jalapenos to prevent these kinds of accidents.
When it comes to the level of heat in your finished product, you can adjust to fit your personal preference. If you like a little heat, feel free to leave some seeds in. If you like your poppers more on the mild side, scrape out the jalapenos very well and rinse them, too.
They also write that it’s easiest to work with softened cream cheese, so leave it out at room temperature for a while to bring it to the appropriate consistency.
In the end, you’ll end up with delicious poppers that are a bit lighter than your traditional poppers, as these bite-sized snacks are baked rather than fried.
