Jalapeno Cheese Crisps

Prep Time
30 min

Ree makes a perfectly crisp appetizer with a jalapeno kick.

Yield: 24 crisps



jalapenos, sliced into thin rounds
cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
cup freshly grated pecorino cheese
cup freshly grated Manchego cheese


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.

Step 2

Sprinkle the jalapeno slices around one of the prepared baking sheets in a single layer. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes; this will remove some of the moisture from the jalapeno and help ensure your cheese crisps live up to the crisp in their name. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 3

Meanwhile, mix the cheeses together in a medium bowl.

Step 4

Using a tablespoon measure, spoon mounds of the cheese mixture onto the lined baking sheets, 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart from each other. Press a jalapeno slice into the center of each mound. Bake until golden and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 5

Allow the crisps to cool slightly before handling, then serve. Or let cool completely and store in an airtight container.
