Jalapeno Poppers, but make them in the air fryer! This easy version only takes 10 minutes to cook. Jalapeno poppers are typically filled with a mixture of shredded cheese and cream cheese. We like to take it one step further and wrap bacon around them for the perfect combination of savoury and spicy. These work well as a party appetizer that you can assemble ahead of time and keep in the fridge until ready to serve. And while you most likely won’t have any leftovers, you can easily reheat these the next day!
