Spicy Jalapeño Popper Pastry Bites

Get ready for a super tasty snack that’s going to be a hit at any party or just when you’re chilling at home and feeling a bit peckish. We’re making Jalapeño Popper Pastry Bites! These little bites are a fun twist on the classic jalapeño poppers, but we’re wrapping them in flaky pastry instead of frying. They’re spicy from the jalapeños, creamy from the cream cheese, and have a nice crunch from the bacon. Plus, if you’re into dipping, you can serve them with some ranch dressing on the side. So, let’s get started and whip up these delicious bites that are sure to disappear in no time!


  • 1 can of crescent roll dough
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked until crispy and then crumbled
  • 2-3 jalapeños, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 1 cup of cream cheese, softened
  • Ranch dressing for dipping (optional)

  1. Preheat and Prep:
    • Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the crescent roll dough package (usually around 375°F or 190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, crumbled bacon, and chopped jalapeños until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Bites:
    • Roll out the crescent dough and cut it into squares or triangles, depending on the shape you prefer.
    • Place a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each dough piece.
    • Fold the dough over the filling and pinch the edges to seal, forming little pockets.
  4. Bake:
    • Arrange the filled pastry bites on the prepared baking sheet.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and puffed up.
  5. Serve:
    • Let the Jalapeño Popper Pastry Bites cool for a few minutes before serving.
    • Serve them warm with a side of ranch dressing for dipping, if desired.

Enjoy these spicy, creamy, and utterly irresistible Jalapeño Popper Pastry Bites at your next party, gathering, or as a treat for yourself when you’re in the mood for something deliciously savory.
