These easy Jalapeno Poppers are rich and creamy little bites of stuffed jalapenos with bacon, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, ranch seasoning, and green onions. A tasty and delicious appetizer to make for a crowd. Jalapeno poppers can be made a variety of ways with plenty of different fillings and toppings. Stick around to try a few of the variations and recipes at your next gathering.
