Texas torpedoes, jalapeno slammers and armadillo eggs are all amped-up names for the humble and versatile jalapeño popper. Whether stuffed with cheddar cheese and deep-fried or wrapped in bacon and grilled, jalapeño poppers are a spicy crowdpleaser welcomed at any summer gathering.
There's no limit to what can be tucked inside a jalapeño, so why not get a little creative with the options? From my experience, just try to keep the fillings smooth, running them through the food processor if it's too chunky. After the chiles are stuffed, they can be baked, broiled, fried or grilled—whatever strikes your mood.
