Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner, and it’s time to start planning your party. Snacks are the star of the show, and this recipe for mini jalapeno popper egg rolls from Spend With Pennies has everything you need to impress your guests when the big game rolls around.
The crispy, creamy apps provide a little bit spicy heat, and they’re sure to be the type of snack that makes it impossible to have just one.
These popper egg rolls take less than 10 minutes from prep to ready-to-pop, so they’re perfect for whipping up at the last minute. The ingredient list is simple, too, and includes cream cheese, cheddar cheese, canned jalapeno peppers, garlic powder, green onions, wonton wrappers and vegetable oil.
The filling will be super-hot when these bite-size snacks are done frying, so be sure to let them cool for about five minutes before digging in. These poppers sound delicious all on their own, but I could also see them pairing perfectly with ranch dressing or a spicy mayo dip.

If you’re looking to cut down on extra fat and calories, some people indicated in the comments that they have made them in an air fryer — or baked them in the oven — for a savory treat without all the grease.
Jalapeno popper dogs are another way to incorporate jalapenos into a hot and spicy appetizer. The type of cheese you use in this recipe is up to you — American, cheddar or pepper jack would all work well.
You can cook these on the grill for that perfectly charred look, but if it’s a bit too cold to venture outside in your neck of the woods, an indoor electric grill will do the job.

How To Watch The Super Bowl Without Cable
The food takes center stage at many Super Bowl parties, but you’ll obviously want to tune into the big game, and if you don’t have cable, you may be wondering how to watch it. Super Bowl LVI will air on NBC on Feb. 13. You can stream it on Peacock or the NBC Sports app, for example. But if you want to avoid subscription fees, the original way to watch the Super Bowl remains the most cost-effective and reliable: install an over-the-air digital antenna. Since the game always airs on either CBS, Fox or NBC — three of the major over-the-air broadcast networks — it’s totally free for anyone with a TV and antenna to watch on their local affiliate.
If you’ve already got your over-the-air antenna set up and your local NBC affiliate is already scanned into your channel lineup, simply flip to that station on the day of the game and enjoy the coverage from start to finish, fee-free, including NBC’s pre- and post-game shows, all the commercials and the halftime show.
If you don’t have an over-the-air antenna, check out this guide on finding the best one for your needs, then install it and run a scan for channels on your TV. Your local NBC affiliate should be among the ones you receive and that’s where you’ll want to flip on game day.
