What You'll Need
  • 3 Jalapenos
  • 1/2 cup Tortilla chips
  • 1/4 cup Salsa
  • 1/2 cup Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Cheddar (Shredded)
  • 2 tablespoons Cilantro (Chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons Green Onions (Chopped)
  • 1.5 teaspoons Mexican Seasoning
  • 1/8th teaspoons Garlic Powder
  1. Blend your tortilla chips in a food processor to get crumbs for the topping.
  2. Cut and seed jalapeños (wear gloves or just be very careful around the eyes!)
  3. In a bowl, stir everything else together.
  4. Place the mixture evenly in the jalapeño slices.
  5. Top the jalapeños evenly with the tortilla chip crumbs.
  6. Air fry (or bake) for 5-7 minutes at 380 (go a little longer, if needed)
